	My 2 (euro) cents: keep things as they are, and add gateways.
Usenet forums are incredibly crowded with spam (and harvested for new
addresses daily by spammers). Many news feeds also have a significant lag.

	Suggestion: a "mailing list" link on the left side of the
main erlang.org page (where the "Documentation", "Examples", etc are).

	A google search of "erlang" returns erlang.org in the first place.
A google search of "telecom development platform" returns Ericsson Review
(article on OTP) in second place, then OTP at ericsson.com next (no
erlang.org or erlang.se, but not bad). But just turn that into
"telecommunications development platform" and the first erlang match is at
pos 19.

Regards,

Miguel
