Hi Mu, Thanks for proposing this! Strongly agree with the newsletter - this would be the most economically efficient way to enhance community involvement.
In addition to the draft wiki pages, should we send posts like "Call for newsletter articles" to dev@ list with some frequency? This could help maximize the community awareness and help active community members get more exposure - Community building is important.
