I'll have a look at it in a bit.

This sounds like a good idea to me.

Maybe could be a bit more explicit
about the tasks and contributions we're after? Maybe also encourage
folks to join the channel and mailing list and introduce themselves if
they'd like to be reporters?

Which is why I want to fix it, advertise a submission process and get
others involved to help out.
