That's all somewhat beside the point, IMHO (although it really should be 
documented in the handbook). It was announced (here), many people saw it, 
others didn't. And people will still miss things regardless of how many 
places you announce them in.

The most effective way to spread the news actually _is_ the process you've 
been going through: Someone tells you in a more or less friendly way about 
some new thing (perhaps after you've been complaining about something in a 
more or less friendly way because you missed an announcement). Just ignore 
the bozos who call you dumb and care about the useful pieces of 
information. :)
