status of The Fridge:  work in progress...

Overlaps:  not really.  The Fridge will be a portal of news/calendar, etc 
related to Ubuntu-world.  So people still have to write stuff, including 
possibly that weekly newsletter; The Fridge will simply be the location where 
that weekly newsletter will be posted for everyone to see.

Personally I really miss the Ubuntu Traffic.  But I suspect the raw amount of 
work to issue it every week was probably quite large, and unless quite a few 
people working as a group organize themselves to write these weekly traffic, 
it will not come back.
