With more than 15 projects, each one of which would presumably have
the right to post a monthly update, that amounts to an email every
couple of days.

I don't care much for Java either, but on the other hand, I would like
to find a compromise that

1) Lets me keep abreast of major developments/interesting things in
   other apache projects.

2) Doesn't require me to subscribe to another 343432 mailing lists.

Some sort of compromise of this type would hopefully do a bit towards
"cross-pollination" efforts, which I presume are something we value?

Maybe what is needed is an editor for an 'ASF news' mail which lists
the month's highlights.  Not volunteering, sorry!
