Hey, that's me! I'm happy to help with any kind of blog or syndication
task like this, but I don't think you'll need a whole project and
mentor just for that.

I've written a bunch of utilities like the one you describe. It's
pretty easy to implement a Roller scheduled task that fires
periodically, reads the most recent X entries in a tag, forms an email
and sends it out. Are those really the complete requirements.

What blogs would be included in the newsletter? You could create and
designate one blog to be the Labs blog or look for the Labs tag across
all blogs.
