I'll agree that something needs to be done to clean up past news items
that are obsolete. Can we go back and make them expire or just delete
them? Yesterday's news isn't news.
I guess this is a matter of opinion, but on Gentoo I don't think we're
really at much risk of driving people away by OVER-communicating. Our
users are used to things changing and a certain level of
fix-it-yourself, but if we know something is going to cause no end of
questions it only makes sense to throw the users a bone once in a
to post comments)
