The [ANNOUNCE] for changes ought to simplify the release notes, and
having something easily filterable in the Factory list, gets you
automatic asynchronous notification, that "polling a Webpage" does
not.

There is a article History that can be consulted for any changes.

Still polling the web page, RSS was made so ppl can see when new
articles are available.

To have use of article history without much digging, people editing page
should leave note in the Summary field below edit window, what the change is
about.

It would be even better to add sign with --~~~~ which will leave wiki ID and
date change was written, so if there is any questions, one can contact author
of announcement without digging in the article history.

Digging history without summaries is slow process, so whoever adds new lines
to http://en.opensuse.org/Factory/Developer-News , please fill summary too.

Now you're adding unenforceable rules that I will totally forget,
because I probably will only edit Wiki occasionally.

That's never going to work, because it's against human nature. The
Wiki encourages quick changes, and it looks lke you're done, without
doing those extras.

Also the wiki history is written even if you only change a single
character on the page. And even with good summaries, you need to view
the diff to actually fetch the info. Quite unusable for tracking the
announce info.
