Having a wiki section to collect tips is fine (see
http://wiki.darcs.net/HintsAndTips); but what I'm really after is a
regular, visible and sustained effort to (indirectly) educate users
about darcs.  Basically we want to give more people a better working
understanding about darcs, which I think will result in a bit more
enthusiasm about it.

I thought the blog was appropriate because it give us self-contained
articles and the feeling of publishing something (regularly).  I want
the tip itself to appear in the feed, not a link saying "oh, we now have
a tip on the wiki on how to do X").  Just adding a little value to the
darcs feed, no reason to limit ourselves to news.
