Now for the real question: Why are package-announce e-mails not delayed
until at least the minimal "available on everything known as" is verified?

I know it is quibbling over what will likely be hours, it just seems that
package-announce would be more useful if one could assume that the
announcement meant that the updated package was available somehow (other
than searching for which mirror is lucky enough to have it).

Yes, of course, I can and will wait for things to work themselves out (as
they normally do), just making a suggestion.
