the releases when they're ready, but simply a page saying, 'Hey,
FreeBSD x.y release is coming soon, we're currently working on 'blah.''

Something more than what's here then?


Yes. Especially for people who aren't savvy to the mailing lists, that page contains virtually NO useful information. TBA is only useful if, at some point, it actually is announced. In addition, please point out to me if I'm wrong, there's no easy/readily- identifiable way to get to that page. RELENG isn't what I'd consider a user-friendly word.

Really, I think my little rant here is more of a customer-service and marketing issue. So many people get upset when someone posts the "when's the next release" question, but there's really no end-user digestible information anywhere for those individuals to help themselves.

Again, just my $.02.
