DataStax has had requests for something like this. It seems like
something that would be generally useful for the community though.

Regarding twitter, I'm not sure a twitter account should be required
to get that information. I think you can follow a twitter account as
an rss feed though, so that might be a solution. That and the  google
alert or email filter solutions just seem to be introducing more
difficulty for anyone trying to get that information. Perhaps the
demand for this isn't as high as I am imagining though.

My opinion on the list if we decide to go with that is that only
committers would be able to post to it and yes it would go to the
users list as well.
