Sorry, it never occurred to me to post there.  Don appears to be the only
one on the entire haskell infrastructure team or haskell.org committee that
thought to post it _anywhere_.  IMO, we should thank him for that much and
ask for haskell/haskell-cafe list reminders in the future.  Lots of people
could have done this not just Don.

Not that I know of, but it was announced on Haskell-Cafe according to the
link you posted :)

In that case, here you go:

You can get those by finding them on twitter and then clicking the RSS link.

That way you can use Google Reader and you don't have to have a twitter
account or visit reddit.

I hope that helps,
