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.
