Charles Lindsey and Steve Bonine suggested that the B8MB should manage
news.announce.important. According to Paul W. Schleck it is no problem
to add the group to the existing STUMP installation.

Theo Markettos, David E. Ross and Steve Bonine expressed doubts about
the usefulness of a group that received 54 submissions in 15 years.
