It is an _Emacs_ announcement.  If you also mention other stuff then some brief
description of its relation to Emacs is in order (i.e., helpful).

The readme is the only place we mention other Windows binaries - e.g. image
binaries.  Why treat GnuTLS specially?  Either mention GnuTLS only in the readme
(preferred) or mention in the announcement each of the binaries that mentioned
in the readme (not preferred).

Wherever GnuTLS is mentioned, the mention should be accompanied by a short
description.  IMO, the readme is the proper place for this.
