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.
