Hmm, I am not sure that creating new mailing list specifically for such
announcements is optimal way. If a maintainer is not regularly reading
the mail list, he might just use the calendar:

Either by:
- adding that calendar to his Google Calendar setup
  - optionally, adding email notifications for events
- checking the calendar automatically
- adding RSS feed to that calendar to his feed reader

Will that work?
