The trouble is the definition of 'available for download'.

I can announce the release when the tarball is made, but then most
users (including I think you?) will find that it is not yet available
for download by their definition.

Or we can announce when some bundle or another is ready, but there's often
some user on some platform for whom it is not yet available. There's no
clear line.

The real trouble here is that I tag a tarball, then later Erinn finishes
some packages, then later I send the tor-talk mail. These "then later"s
take a couple of days each. I have become higher latency on some things
lately, since I'm doing too many Tor jobs at once. Maybe we should stop
the tor-talk mails entirely?
