Current major problem with the Wiki is that one needs to skim over the
"RecentChanges" page regularly in order to learn what details have
changed. The RSS news feed only displays the title of changed pages and
doesn't contain a diff. Not even the summary of changes is included
everytime it seems.

Without additional converage on mailing-lists, changes to guidelines,
policies, or processes remain unknown until somebody runs into them.
That's not good.
