Sounds fun to me; it's not that important to have those listed also on the same day, is it? I mean, it's not difficult to find out what major packages were released within 24h afterwards (just skim through the forums :) but having this information available the next second might pose some difficulties. How would you receive the necessary information? From the packager himself?

We might want to have our strengths documented clearly (but concise) somewhere. The "About Gentoo" page is a good location (recently updated with Gentoo history). Wkr, Sven Vermeulen -- Documentation & PR project leader The Gentoo Project <<< >>>
