The Debian Weekly News was great because it kept everyone informed of
a lot of stuff happening in Debian, packages, mailing lists, blogs,

Currently, there's http://news.debian.net, which does not have _all_
the info that the DWN used to have, but it's doing a good job of
listing a lot of interesting stuff.

Keeping up with the news is a lot of work, and there's usually not
enough people to do it. It doesn't make sense to do the work twice.
Why not work together with Ana into making this website and the DWN
newsletter two ways of accessing the same information?

I know that a blog is not the same thing as a weekly (or bimonthly)
newsletter, but I'm sure that a workflow that avoids doing the same
task twice can be worked out, and it would be a benefit for everyone
