That's a good point. I subscribe to the RSS, so I see the
announcements of major releases and all the cool new features ...
and they always take me by surprise because I've usually not heard
about any of it, even though I read the developer mailing list and
am on IRC a lot too (but apparently not during hours when cool new
features are most often being discussed).

I'm definitely not criticizing: Alex does a great job of getting
the word out, and I do see the release announcements in RSS, on the
mailing list, and sometimes on Twitter. And I'd rather see developers
spending time working on cool new features than worrying about
writing posts describing what they're doing. Still, it would be
pretty great to hear a little on the mailing list about what's in
progress, if anyone has the time to do that ... and it might even
whip up enthusiasm from potential contributors (wow, they're working
on THAT now? That's a feature I really care about, maybe I can help!)
