Then your complain should be why we dont have a better way of
communicating interesting changes to users which has come up plenty of
times and noone cares enough to set it up. Using the commit log for
this is just plain bloody wrong.

A blog has been "green lighted" but the dev group and just needs
someone to set it up, so why not use some of your energy into making
things better instead of just complaining?
