Thanks to GHOP[1] participant ezyang[2] and the talk I gave[3] at  
BADCamp[4], I'm happy to announce the creation[5] of a new must-read  
d.o handbook page for everyone maintaining projects on d.o:

"Releases and Update Status"

It explains how update_status works, and how the choices you make as  
a module maintainer regarding your official releases and project node  
settings impact your user base by means of the update_status module  
(now in core for D6).

Please read it! ;)

p.s. There are a handful of edge cases and limitations in the current  
behavior.  I've posted a proposal to fix them all.  Comments, input,  
and/or help would be most welcome:
