That's what I pointed out. This list was the place to know what was happening. It isn't anymore.

There are very few announcement mails on this list. Half of the announcements on this list in 2013 were by me. And announcements other than mine generally don't describe syntax much. (Not all announcements have something newsworthy to say about the syntax either, so that's fine.)
