Just a simple suggestion, why not just include a keyword like "ANNOUNCE" in the subject line and if you don't want anything but those then just filter the rest to the trash.
I no it doesn't reduce the bandwidth of messages but it could solve this issue if those posting announcements use the keyword.
Just my 2 cents.

Can you organize such a list or point us to a resource which provides
such lists (spam-proof etc.)?
On the other hand really important announces for SANE (new versions,
development snapshots, major changes) are posted on
www.mostang.com/sane/ so you may use a service that checks the website
for changes once a day or so.
If you are interested in the changes that happen in the CVS you can

What announcements do you want to see? Only SANE itsself or also for new
backend and frontend versions?
