In creation of "Jakarta Newsletter Issue 9",  I tried several things
by way of experiment.

1. Announced to all the -dev list (not cross-post) to solicit
2. Announced here in community@ to solicit contributors
2. Added the list of the "New Committers" -- welcomed to apache.org
3. Added the list of the "products available as of the end of the month"
4. Added various news from jakarta-related
5. Posted the news (articles) here in community@

In this process, I came across many things which should be piled
up for the successors as *knowledge*. Also, I think this know-how
might be applicable to the "XML-Newsletter"/"Apache-Newsletter"/...

I really thank to all the contributors and the predecessors
(Rob and Robert).

P.S. Maybe, in the next newsletter, I can add the *Readers' Opinions* or
*Readers' View* subsection (^_^)
