It seems that #debian-devel@OFTC channel topic is used to inform for some particular situations, even grave ones (like HP Fort Collins outage of today).
But what to do if you'd like to be alerted for such situation and you can't check IRC, or you prefer different communication medium (like mails or feeds)?
There is a nice page on wiki.d.o that's been updated every time that #debian-devel@OFTC topic is changed. So, go there and simply subscribe to it (and you'll receive emails every time the page is changed). There should be a way to get an RSS feed from a MoinMoin page, but can't find a way: suggestions?
