Announcement mailing list

Viewing 6 replies - 1 through 6 (of 6 total)
  • Well no replies after one week, so “bumping” this one up to the top again. And the bug ticket was opened three weeks ago with no comment or change from anyone. Do the WordPress team look at newly opened tickets at all?

    Can someone, anyone, confirm that they’ve been able to join the announcements list? It doesn’t take long to add a “works for me”, or “broken for me too” comment.

    After a one month delay, my ticket (http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2772) was closed as “worksforme” with the comment “We don’t use the list much, but the subscription part works.”

    How, then, do I subscribe? I enter my email address in the box and hit the “Join” button; I am then shown a page which says, “You’ve been subscribed to the list. Thanks!”

    But I’ve never, ever received a release announcement. As I’ve already noted, with buggy software like WordPress, it’s important to receive timely notification of releases because they may contain important fixes for security holes.

    Those same announcements seem to pop up on your blog’s Dashboard page.

    That being said, I canconfirm that the announcement list has never worked for me either (just tried again). I’d probably re-open the ticket and ask for details on how to make it work.

    Yes, I know they’re on the Dashboard, but I shouldn’t have to log in to my WordPress install just to make sure there are no security bugs waiting to be fixed…

    Did you get to my second paragraph yet?

    Yes, why do you ask? I was agreeing with you.
