Well to be honest.. most of those places aren't in front of people's
faces. They are in front of your faces because you work in it 60+
hours a week every week. If I get 6 hours to play with Fedora on a
week I am ecstatic. If this was mentioned 1.5 years ago, 6 months ago,
etc.. it is gone from the brain of most of the people who may be
developing something completely different from this one feature. Thats
one of the issues with communication in a virtual environment.. you
must continuously do it because people join, leave, focus on their own
project, etc. Sadly putting it up on a web page is not enough because
there are too many webpages, too many twitters, etc for people to know
whats important until it smacks them in the face and says "Oh we
changed your XYZ, please redo all your docs for us."
