In my view, I think it should be both. Availability of a potentially
useful library would be welcome in the users list where there are
potentially a lot more people looking who might want to try new
libraries out.

The nitty gritty details of what's going on in the library can and
probably should be discussed in developers mailing list, but
otherwise, just announcing the availability of a candidate library for
review until acceptance should be encouraged in both lists.

Thank you too, I hope this helps. :)
