I think this would be good and maybe it could be a bit of a team effort like 
the "big" .0 release announcements themselves.

In the Promo BoF we were talking about how to revitalise the Dot -- it seems a 
lot of people read the headlines in social media, but there is not much click-
through, so the number of visitors is relatively low. Release announcements 
themselves are popular and this sounds like the sort of thing that would 
require a click-through to get all the news about the releases, so my vote 
goes to the Dot.

I don't think this is a problem.
