Usually the announcement was even proceeded by debate from lead developers, how and when (which bugs still need fixing). Since GitLab migration there is almost no discussions from lead developers and "pre-announcements" on this mailing list. I suspect that this is also happening on GitLab, but I am not sure as I don't follow it closely.
