For what it's worth, DWN has sought (regular) contributors for several
years (see the last paragraph of each issue).  However, only few people
have really contributed regularly: Andre Lehovich, Matt Black, Dan Hunt,
Sebastian Feltel and Mohammed Adnène Trojette are the only (more or less)
regular contributors besides me.  If you want to see DWN revived, find
people who contribute.

Here is what I wrote to the DWN people in September:

The only two items in the prepared but unreleased issue are from

If you send in enough items to make an issue, I'm willing to release
it on the next available Tuesday.  You could also think about funding
DWN if it's important enough.
