How are end-users and devs supposed to know about new releases?

To the best of my knowledge, OpenWRT/LEDE doesn't have any method of pushing announcements out to end-users or contributing developers about new releases.

People who are somewhat involved subscribe to the mailing list. For others there's sticky topics that poke your eyes out in the forum.

Both answers so far require proactive behavior on the part of the user to go out and periodically check for new releases. That's not what I asked for.

An announcements mailing list would be great, but the old OpenWRT announcements list was shut down in the last year or two.

I don't use twitter myself, but that would be reasonable. However, the OpenWRT official twitter account doesn't appear to list any announcements, and is also full or non-announcement kind of self-promotion that would be inappropriate for an announcements mechanism.

Dang, that's a really good solution. I even already have another git notification service set up and I didn't even think of it. Thanks vgaetera!

I think you can also subscribe to be notified on Wiki (releases) page change.
