I guess this was mostly humorous, but still, I feel compelled to say
The release news are no substitute for the Wine Weekly News.
They are not even close. They are just one-line summaries of the top-5
changes in the release. Besides the other 5 top-10 items they miss, they
don't mention any of the discussions happening on wine-devel, nor any of
the talk about Wine in the news, or upcoming WineConfs, application
database improvements, etc.
The WWN was really nice. I fear that without it the wider community and
outsiders mostly see the 5 lines release news and think that not much is
happening (or think that we only work on obscure/useless stuff due to
lack of context), or at least have pretty much no idea what is going on.
WWN provided a very useful service to Wine by letting them get a glimpse
of the life of the project. Unfortunately, not having the skills or the
time required, I can only hope that some kind soul can fill that void
