This was a particular issue last week when I blinked and while I did, in excess of 500 new posts appeared on the ietf-announce list  making any last call announcement hard to find (My MUA support is wrecked and the web interface is primitive

This is the question I am raising to myself, too.

I think in general, there are very few things important right now.

I struggle to concentrate on the ietf matter precisely.

I think as long as we post here as usual, regardless of how far the
