This remembers me of the KDE (a Linux Desktop Environment) CVS digest:

They classify changes into the following categories orthogonal to the 
KDE modules:
* Features
* Optimize
* Security
* Bug Fixes

This weekly report of the CVS activity is done by Derek Kite, who 
deserves all the credit for digging through all the CVS commits and 
summing up the results.

There are many ideas in these reports, of which Cocoon could benefit too.
