May I suggest that we
(a) post this to fink-announce, too (at least in theory, some people
might be subscribed to that list but not to the user list -- people
who only want to know about important major stuff, like this one.
(b) also announce this with a news item on the website?
Motivation: I already got some mails by people who use "fink
selfupdate" regularly, but are not subscribed to fink-users etc. -- so
they were caught unaware by the massive change. With a public news
item, we could at least point people there, instead of having to re-
explain everything everytime :)
