I like the idea.

I have received requests to include high level summaries from all

I recently added to the weekly newsletter are an attempt to address the

Not sure the wiki is the best place for this sort of stuff (wiki pages
are awful for anything but quick notes): since we want this content to
be delivered and produced easily I would suggest setting up something
that resembles more a commit log than a wiki page. A short, brief dump
of text, written by developers or people involved, using tools they're
already familiar with. I'd prefer a short email to the list, with a tag
in the subject instead of a wiki page.

I'd be glad to further distribute them in the weekly newsletter.
