Good analysis, Carlos. I agree that keeping a newsletter up to date on a 
weekly basis is very hard to do, and it may indeed be a good idea to 
instead try something else that is more automatic.

planetzope.org is indeed a good start. Luckily Michael Haubenwallner of 
planetzope is a datamunger, and is working on involving other sources of 
news, such as zope related del.icio.us links.

Michael, what do you think?
