Okay, but my concern is do gcc-announce readers care about Java announcements?
Hypothetical examples: "gtk based AWT implementation now available!" or "RMI
now supported in current snapshot". Then again, such announcements are
probably infrequent enough that gcc readers won't mind seeing them, so I don't
care strongly about this.

The existing policy for this is that java compiler patches go to gcc-patches
(only) while runtime patches go to java-patches (only). Rationale: Runtime
patches are unlikely to be of interest to most gcc developers, while front-end
patches might be. Maybe it would be useful to have the compiler patches sent
to both lists however.
