Note on Changes [2], [3], [4]

The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter wiki pages will be changed, as time
allows, to reflect the new publishing schedule, proposed template

News Team Needs More Volunteers [5]

Also *NEEDED* are Publishing Editors. There is a page [6] to sign up
to publish and or edit all or parts of upcoming UWN issues. I will be
available on Sunday, time still to be determined based on need, to
help with editing issue 218 and training new editors/publishing
editors, sign up here if you are interested and if you can make
yourself available on Sunday please indicate what times you will be on

Archives [7]

The Archives have been updated to reflect where we are for this week
and to show what weeks were missing etc.

 * Issue #211 (NOT LISTED IN THE ARCHIVES YET) (2010/11/28 -
2010/12/04) - This issue will include in UWN Sneak Peek links to
information from the weeks Issues 218, 219, 220 would have been
published.  This is being done to keep the "snap shot" of the news
period correct.  (ie the upcoming newsletter is for last week the
information contacted in the main body of it will reflect
articles/information from that week)
