How  about  'tiering'  them? Either using categories or by  separation  to
different  blogs.  At the moment, in order to get insight into less  major
(or  severe) announcements, one needs to syndicate blogs of the  principal
developers,  notably Matt and Ryan. There are several existing sites  that
offer  different  feeds, which compose different amounts  of  information,
depending  on importance. As I perceive it, to keep track of WordPress one
needs to:

|  * Subscribe to WordPress.org
|  * Subscribe to WordPress developer blogs
|    (feeds filtered by category/search)
|  * Subscribe to trac/svn mailing lists
|  * Subscribe to developers mailing lists
|  * Subscribe to support forums
|  * ...

Lower 'signal-to-noise' ratio
