Is this effective immediately?

In other words, was the libstdc++so7-4.2.0-0.3.20060203.3 update on
Friday the last update announcement coming to fedora-announce-list?

Or is there a cut-over time?

Perhaps best would be to continue posting to f-announce-l and cross-post
to f-package-announce for another week?  Give people time to sign up
before stopping their the package announcement feed?
