This means you don't want to use the Wiki for the current issue only
but want to keep all issues there?

Mmh, I don't care where the current issue is written but would prefer
if it would move later to www.debian.org/News/weekly/. This would allow to
have only "released" news and could reuse the translation framework
of the website such as statistics, robots, ... See e.g.

and committed to CVS :-)

I could convert the Wiki pages into WML and commit. But to be honest I
do not have any experience with wiki systems. I hope there is an easy way
to get it offline maybe also to do the conversion automatically ...
I would also continue working on the German translation (in CVS, not in
a wiki).
