+100, the editor and rendering sucks.

I like this approach in general and I agree there is a certain merit in having
the announcements in the source repo, BUT :-)

We are very close now with the migration of in.relation.to to awestruct. In fact I
was hoping we could do the migration within a couple of weeks. Using the awestruct
based blog, we get markdown/ascidoc for writing the blog entries and also a blog
which matches it its style the current hibernate.org website. It also means we can
continue our practice of announcing on the blog. The release announcements make up
a considerable part of the blog content, I fear moving them to GitHub will make our blog
to appear stagnant.

My vote is to push this blog migration through - now!
