Volunteers is tolerable, campaign donations is an entirely different ballgame.
Especially since on one hand they're not taking donations from 'special
interest groups.' The "Free Software Movement" is a special interest group,
if they don't support special interest groups then they don't support you.

I do. One time announcements belong on mailing-lists like zope-announce, or
zope-chat. We have enough people who rouse when stuff is off topic 
(like this whole thread, and I do apologise for continuing it),
without the introduction postings about stuff that is completely and 
totally unrelated.
