How about each project maintains their own RSS news feed (like Orizon and a
few others do). You can use a blog, a twitter account, or even a GoogleCode
change feed.  We can aggregate these and create a feed dedicated to
announcements.

Borrowing a statement from James McGovern, I wanted to "Noodle" with ya on
our existing projects:

https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Project

and enable a milestone alert via RSS to the main page of owasp.org

PROBLEM
- With all these projects, the only way people learn of "updates" is when
someone project leader or contributor etc.. emails out to the mailing lists
such as OWASP, WASC, SC, etc.. And that creates untargeted list traffic.  So
if all this OWASP information was RSS to a collective location on our own
site people could "subscribe" to the feed and or check in once a month to
see what's new and has hit a milestone.

Subscribe to the project

Subscribe to the ALL owasp projects

PROPOSED SOLUTION
- Anyone want to earn some money and apply for a OWASP Grant to work on this
feature or can recommend a solution to improve the visibility of our
application security projects to the world via the OWASP RSS Project ;) or
get involved with the Tools committee see:
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Global_Projects_and_Tools_Committee

Discussion... Thoughts, flames to dev null.
