If we want the release manager to follow a process when notifying relay
operators about a release, the best place to document that process is

Please add another paragraph about emailing affected operators after the
existing "Mail the release blurb and ChangeLog” paragraph at:

For relay and bridge operators, the appropriate list is:
tor-relays at lists.torproject.org

For directory authority operators, the appropriate list is:
dir-auth at lists.torproject.org

Then you can replace “mail” with "signed mail” where appropriate.
