I have to disagree. I consider attempts to build a competing community 
by spamming maillists with announcements to be annoying and rude. The 
criterion should be does this post add value to the community. I believe 
that Greg's posts do not add value to the pygtk community and he should 
refrain from posting his announcement to the pygtk list.
