Sounds more like a Circle newsletter, then anything else.

Although it was unintentioned, I didn't mean to raise alarm about canning
the mailing list.  I just figured if you open up a forum of discussion on a
website (which is what slashdot is), you'll draw away attention from the
mailing list.

If you just tack on commetns to specific snippets, kinda like "Dual Weapon
patch for Circle bpl 14", comments such as "very easy to install", "had no
problems", "be careful for warnings", etc...
