I kind of realised after spending a few days browsing trough TWiki.org webpages that it might be to early to do this kind of e-publications (also cause I haven't recived any feedback), so I gues if anything is about to happened it will be on more general subject of Wiki culture instead of TWiki only.

If anyone wants to continue to brainstorm please send an e-mail or continue writing to this topic.

Hi Zeljko, I don't know about anybody else but I didn't respond because I don't see that a TWikiNewsletter would give me anything I don't get already simply by using the site itself. Unless I suppose you are thinking of a sort of Readers Digest version of WebChanges, MozillaSidebar. It seems like a lot of work for little gain. On the other hand perhaps if you produce a sample issue it's utility could be seen.

I'm sure experianced TWiki user/developer gets to the info easily... but this was idea to promote beyond existing community. Something that would engage new people in projects, prevent needles forking, engage some of the content/design people in development through feedback, pruposals, usability testing... But than again I might be wrong with this:)

You might think of something like what kernel-cousins does with summarizing changes. It would require a lot of work to follow all the changes on TWiki and make a monthly/weekly topic that summarized the changes. However, it would be a really good way to catch up. Each summary would then have a link to the actual topic where the discussion took place. This has the advantage of leaving original content in the wiki itself while still giving newbies a place to find all the "major" updates. This differs from the WebChange page in that only "interesting changes" or changes that have "concensus" would make the cut.
