Well, it certainly wouldn't be a stretch for me to post news items.
Generally I write the news section as items occur during the week.
It's not like I sit down on Thursday night and bang out the whole
WWN - all I do is run some scripts and mail it off.  So yeah, I 
guess I'm volunteering for this.  You'll just have to trust my
judgement on what gets added and what doesn't.  (Yeah, I'll be
more liberal than I mentioned earlier.)  It won't be complete
duplication of WWN articles, though knowing the current state of
development I'd guess there would be about 2 - 3 news items a week.

My one request is Jeremy would have to write some kind of simple 
interface in order to get the items in there.  I don't have reliable
access to CVS or a shell acct at work, just web and email.  I guess
there's only three things that would need to be input:

 link to the real article / web page / press release
 short tagline (such as "WHAT'S NEW" for the releases)

right.. that wouldn't be me.  Writing summaries, posting news is
one thing, I'm not volunteering for anything more than that (right
