Info of slippage should be by mail list, Wiki & Blog have draw backs:
  - Needs active monitoring, whereas once subscribed to a mail list one's
    interest in topics is registered & one gets info automatically,
    not just on polling.
  - Needs permanent net connection whereas Mail can be downloaded when on
    line & read off line while travelling on laptop, pda etc. Wlan
    is not global coverage, fast or free.
