I might, but I also might not.  Changes in mailing lists should be
handled very carefully -- the only time seeding an ML with the previous
subscribers is close to foolproof is if the ML has been renamed.

I understood your message to mean that I am now subscribed to two lists
(which is why I got the message twice): talk and announce.  This seems
to contradict the notion of these two being combined.

But I may just be confused...
