To Drupal release management...

...with love.

Would it be too much to ask if new Drupal releases could be announced on Freshmeat ? The current Drupal Freshmeat-record is out of date (last updated 3 may 2006) and still refers to 4.7.0.

Having a seperate branch for both the 4.7.x and 5.x stable releases as well as the 6.x development releases would be great. Links to release notes and downloads would be superb ! And a short description of the changes gain you additional karma points.

The reason I ask is because Freshmeat is perfect in tracking more than a single project and as a packager it helps a lot to have a single interface to track all the software I package.

With the CentOS project we recently cleaned up the dusty CentOS Freshmeat-record and made it part of the releases process.

I'd be very grateful if Drupal could do the same !
