I noticed that the digest is not send out. Only when you use the option "Should Mailman send the 
next digest right now, if it is not empty?" it is send.

List settings are good. See screenshot.

100% guess, but could digests be switched off for that mailing list, given that
it's an announcements list; doesn't have a lot of traffic, and is intended to
communicate possible security or other updates?

Yes, that is true. It is in my POV not a good idea for this list to subscribe in
digest mode.

In Wikizine nr. 8 I have written;

=== Did you know... ===

... that the only difference between non-digest and digest delivery of
Wikizine is that digest readers have to wait between 12 and 24 hours
longer before the receive the copy?

http://mail.wikipedia.org/mailman/listinfo/announce-l

Number of subscribers:225
Non-digest:193
Digest:32

one week later;

Number of subscribers:240
Non-digest:205
Digest:35

It makes no sense to subscribe in digest but if people wants it who am I to
forbid them to do so? 

I will wait and if there comes not responds to this bugreport I will change
those subscriptions to normal mode.
Comment 4 Walter Vermeir 2006-02-27 21:58:00 UTC
I have changed all digest subscribers to non-digest and disabled the function
for this list because it does not work. 
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2011-11-29 21:40:54 UTC
I'm going to consider this resolved -- digests are not very compatible with a low-traffic list like this.
