I was going to reply that I do post the release announcements on the
blog, but now I see I forgot to do that for 3.8 :-/

Last time, I talked about posting to llvm-announce about release
candidates, etc., but never actually followed through as I was
ambivalent about how people would perceive the signal-to-noise ratio.
It's similar for the blog: is info about release candidates valuable
for those not involved enough to read llvm-dev, or would it be
perceived as noise, hiding more important contents? I'm pretty
