I was not looking for issues, specifically. I was interested in what the
changes are, not if there are any mistakes. Reading it because of
interest in it will be my primary concern.

I don't know if I would be good at finding mistakes, but the more people
try the better.

Sending a draft to tor-talk would certainly work for me. I'd prefer if
it is obvious that it is a draft. Before you resurrected tor-announce I
saw a change-log on tor-talk and went to the Tor website to download the
latest binary. So saying it's a draft in the subject helps to avoid

Sending to tor-talk would also work, because there are lots of people on it.

How about another list like tor-feedback for general things to review
(e.g no patches, no code, no proposals)? Interested people could
subscribe (I would) and get drafts of the change-log to review for
errors. This could include things like blog entries that have to be
reviewed or the Tor Newsletter in its RC state.

I'm open to other suggestions.
