Indeed, I wasn't aware at all about those Email Alerts. How's one supposed to know about them? Given what you just said, I found a mention of it in [https://sqlite.org/forum/register](), but I thought that was only to get email notifications **of forum posts**, NOT an independent ML specifically for release notices. And if someone's already getting emails for all forums posts, or following the forum in general, getting notified of releases does not seem like it is too much. YMMV I guess, but I sure don't mind it.
