It would be great.

A few years ago, we had the "Mono Weekly News" which covered
developments on SVN, new features, discussions on the mailing lists and

I miss those days;   Although I try to capture the "high level" news on
the release notes, the release notes are not the right vehicle to pass
information around.

I think the Mono Weekly News could come in the form of a blog.

I agree.   We should for instance track the progress in Moma (see the
"change" field in our Moma reports).

The major issue, as always, is that someone needs to "own" this task and
run with it.
