I think getting the news fast has 2 advantages:

- news submitters see the effect of their news submission on quickly; this is motivation

- news readers use RSS to get notifications quickly, so adding a 24h
  delay spoils the fun.

Note that not all Savannah news are about releases, so the mirrors
availability (when people actually make the effort of using them :/)
is not always criticial.

One a day sounds quite long. One an hour (current) sounds acceptable,
but if Nacho wants to increase the refresh rate, there's probably
demand for a more responsive system?

Which make realize: we didn't consider a 'push' or 'notification'
solution to replace the brute-force 'poll'.

Nacho, do you know about anything that already exists in that regard?
Trackbacks maybe?
