Hey Elfur,
You know that I was thinking about community news a few days ago (when 
you asked about writing a piece about evolt's 5 years) and thought that 
it's a shame that it discontinued.

I guess I'll become a little more active and take that in charge somehow 
in the next weeks.

Maybe sending a 'call to arms' on thelist every month, a few days before 
deadline. Or maybe monthly is too short a rotation, I wonder.

Let's pat each other on the shoulder. :)

Maybe that's a good opportunity to begin community news again, as it's 
going to show our community's activity (and Martin's good news are going 
to come soon, says Madame Sosostris) and participate to the momentum of 
the site's next generation.

Someone revalidate my article, quick ;-)
(I changed the category to make it match the other two and now of course 
it's pending and I can't revalidate it)
