Every new procedure that I initiated I tried my best to start a new thread 
with a clear subject on the matter.  I see the same things from others, such 
as "Pushing updates for Fedora 7" thread.  This is probably one of the most 
maddening thing lately, so much complaint about communication with no 
suggestions on how to make it better.

And you expect us to change it how?  For god sakes if you run into a page that 
is inaccurate, point it out to somebody, hopefully the person who made it 
inaccurate by introducing a new policy.  Maybe we need a tracker page 
of 'inaccurate pages'.  Don't just expect them to be fixed automagically, 
point it out to somebody, change it yourself, do something.  Don't just grow 
more and more frustrated finally bitching about it generically on a list in 
the middle of a long thread.
