In the WP Admin CP, the dev-blog posts are dated as "XX days ago,"  I'm just
thinking that it might be more 'in our best interests' to use  either fuzzy
dates or MM/DD/YY seeing as the days-ago count can go up pretty high.

Maybe it could go into XX months ago at a certain point.

Of course, the better solution would be to have more frequent
Development blog posts! :-D

How about 'tiering' them? Either using categories or by separation to different blogs. At the moment, in order to get insight into less major (or severe) announcements, one needs to syndicate blogs of the principal developers, notably Matt and Ryan. There are several existing sites that offer different feeds, which compose different amounts of information, depending on importance. As I perceive it, to keep track of WordPress one needs to:

|  * Subscribe to WordPress.org
|  * Subscribe to WordPress developer blogs
|    (feeds filtered by category/search)
|  * Subscribe to trac/svn mailing lists
|  * Subscribe to developers mailing lists
|  * Subscribe to support forums
|  * ...

Lower 'signal-to-noise' ratio
