I usually find it better to specify a time other than midnight UTC to
start and finish, since it's not always clear to people which day is
in question..

We don't usually announce repo management to netbsd-announce - there's
usually no need. However, it would be good to get announcement data
together - we did this last time, and it was good to have, I think.
We also just need to get to the next step and announce it, but having
the data on the branch was a good first step.

I feel we'd be better placed concentrating on getting that data together,
and then announcing that, rather than announcing an arbitrary restriction
to what peopel with commit rights can do to the repository.
