Since it is quite some effort to produce one, it might be a good idea
to also get some idea about how well it reaches people.

Did you consider (how) to measure the impact of such a newsletter?

In an email-based newsletter, you could include a web-bug. Not sure 
if such a web-bug would be preserved when the mail is archived though.

An alternative could be a blog-based newsletter with proper analytics.
It would be possible to refer to it easily from Twitter and other channels.
One of these channels could also be comitters@a.o. You could probably even
include some kind of channel-specific campaign ID to figure out if
committes@a.o. is a good channel.

Btw. apparently comitters@a.o is not an archived mailing list but an alias [1].
Unless you want the newsletter to be a private thing going only to committers,
having a public (blog) spot and pointing people to that might be preferable

Just my 2 cents,
