I think they're doing a hell of a job. The last week the RC5 team has
rebuild the stats, and I'm sure that costed them lots of time. If you
want a mailing-list without noise, subscribe to rc5-announce. Sort of
a "latest-news page". Hey, the documentation could be better, but
don't start "I contribute time, so I "demand" a decently and properly
organized challenge. That's just not the way it works.
And if there was a problem of losing key(blocks), I'm sure that would
be announced on both rc5-announce and rc5 lists.
And what about the right half of the main-homepage? That's what I
call latest-news.
