It did have menus before; holding down right button would bring pop-up
menu. Not that I don't prefer the new regular menus ...

I'd have to agree with this one.

Subscribe to the .plans list.

Apparently the d.net priciples don't want to use the announce list lest
people unsubscribe from it and miss a *really important* announcement,
so it has not been used in 3 years. I guess something like a yearly
update or the start of OGR processing is not important enough to risk a
few people unsubscribing, or they are afraid of how many addresses on
the list will bounce since it has been dormant for so long ;)

To unsubscribe, send 'unsubscribe rc5' to majordomo at lists.distributed.net
rc5-digest subscribers replace rc5 with rc5-digest
