I would like to understand how the News and Recent Announcements sections of
the website's front page are intended to be used. Are they supposed to be
updated automatically through some means, or manually?
What is the difference between News and Recent Announcements? Should review-
related matters be posted in the News, the Recent Announcements, or both?
To my mind, it would make the most sense to keep the News focused on major
events of interest to Boost users (e.g., new releases), while the Recent
Announcements can (as they seem intended to) reflect postings to the boost-
announce mailing list.
