This isn't a TV news channel; there's a presumption around here that people are acquainted with the open-source world and the major projects out there. It's vastly preferable that LWN provide the core info rather than indulge people who are too lazy to self-educate (all it takes is a single google or wikipedia search) by wasting everybody elses' time with a bunch of hand-holding. The Wayland project is quite well known, and your claim that their release announcement is "garbage" because it doesn't play to your ignorance was rude, crude, and un-called-for.
Next we'll see people claiming they need a paragraph-long explanation of why they should care affixed to every announcement about the kernel, X.org, etc. That way lies madness.
