Subject Re: Re-launching the ComDev Blog

Yes, I'm interested in helping here. What kinds of things to you imagine
we would have in such a posting? That is, do you have in idea of an outline?

I've been batting about the idea of an *internal* newsletter, making our
own community aware of the larger world of the ASF, which, to me, is a
critical aspect of Community Development. I have an outline/draft here:
- which might give some idea of what I have in mind. This seems like
perhaps a complementary thing to the blog post?

I don't want to duplicate a lot of the effort that Sally makes for her
excellent weekly summary - -
but we can certainly reuse some of that content too.

This is, of course, in line with our conversations last week about
addressing the proliferation of "Satellite" ASF projects, with no real
connection to the larger community.

I help prepare the monthly blog update for OFBiz (see link below for an example)

what has happened during the month.

so we could try something similar to see if it works. So if anyone is interested in helping
prepare the monthly ComDev blog post then please let me know.
