I want to add that part of the intent of the RWN is to catch the announcements 
made on -talk. The RWN can be 'pulled' by going to rubygarden.org or 'pushed' 
through the RWN ML that gets sent out once per week and is non-reply. It 
seems that people don't use the announce feature of the RWN so perhaps it is 
something that should be omitted in future releases.

Take care Ruby folk.
