My take on this:

- I'd rather have two mailing lists only: one for discussions (all type 
   of discussions) and one for announcements. If everything goes into the 
   same list, at least have the announcements clearly tagged so they can 
   be easily filtered.
- An e-mail with news every 10 minutes may be too much. Wouldn't it be 
   better to have a daily news digest of some sort? Then anyone could 
   start a discussion based on it.

My 2 cents.
