I think we set up netrek at us.netrek.org specifically to replace all the
various user/player lists.  It's just that most people don't seem to be
using that list.  I wouldn't mind seeing the darcs patches go to
netrek-cvs, but James has a good point about keeping developers in the
loop on netrek-dev.  There is always the digest subscription mode.

I do think the base netrek@ list is sufficient and a netrek-announce is
unnecessary; the netrek-announce we had on SF never got used.
