I haven't, that's correct. However, a reference should be a source for
additional information. A small exerpt or recap of that thread is not
in the GLEP. Also, [#forums-whining]_ was not referenced in the quoted

Going into answering your question, the thread suggests for instance an
RSS-feed with this info. Also the GLEP mentions 5 distinct sources, of

That last thing was what I was aiming at. For some it might work quite
