Hi Nick,

The aim would be to have both things I think. Some things will only be
of interest to developers, a new policy on changelog entries or something,
and some may be of interest to everyone, the mono 2.0 transition complete

The way I think we would have this work is encourage developers to post
their items to this list as they come up. Myself and other interested
developers would collate them and publish them to developer channels
(ubuntu-devel-annouce@ primarily), and the news team could pick up on
the things of wider interest, and we could work to put them in UWN or

Would this suit the news team? Would a couple of items a week be an
acceptable volume of developer items to this list?
