We can do this in a number of ways, but one option might be a XEP acting as
an informational introduction to Jingle for SIP people.

This has a few advantages over a simple message to the list - first, it's a
living document that'll be available in a useful form forever, and second,
it would have the support of the XSF as a whole, and therefore act as an
official liason document (should we wish to get all formal).
