I read ALL THE THINGS. ;-) 

So, really - I use MarkMail's RSS feed and Google News. I go through the
last week and skim all the discussions, looking particularly at the
[DISCUSS], [VOTE], and [PROPOSAL] type threads. 

Also, I am usually following discussions throughout the week and it's
easy to remember the high points (e.g., Chip's regular schedule
reminders, or discussions that seemed particularly important.)

I probably miss some things, it'd be great if other folks would add
items. Rohit added a few things to the previous week's issue, and that
helped a lot. 

If I were better organized, I'd do a better job of slapping things in
during the week when they happen as opposed to compiling it Monday
morning or Sunday night.

It's a shame there's not a meta-Apache Weekly News that does this for
all Apache projects. Apache is an enormous collection of communities,
and it's really hard for people to know what's going on "next door" --
which means that there's probably lost opportunities for collaboration.
