I would like to suggest a mailing list that us dev types can subscribe to get updates when the platform changes.
Recently our install was updated, and in turn my node creation tool didn't function properly anymore. In the latest release, a new poller type was added for SNMP or ICMP status checks. When I added about 100 nodes, I was unaware of the new N.Status.SNMP.Native and N.Status.ICMP.Native poller types which are responsible for status checks.
I think a better dev relationship would be handy.
