For me this are to much informations on one wikipage. I think it would  
be better to collect this informations on a wikipage about the locoteam.
If somebody is intersted in news he can subscribe to ubuntu-news-team  
and he will get all informations he needs.

loco-contacts is very persisten;)

Yes they are under-used, but this is not a problem about missing  

I think we can add to the locoteam approval process a point where is  
says create a wikipage and document who is doing what in your  
locoteam. So we have a overview who is doing what. And we can spread  
around that there is a ubuntu-news-team mailinglist.
