Something similar appears to have been attempted in the German community
with the new "Wochennotiz" ( e.g.
This in general summarizes the various things that have happened in the
OSM-community in the last week including the various communications channels
like the german and english forum, the german ML and the various other
mailinglists including legal-talk if it is of relevance to a wider audiance.
It then appears to then be cross-posted to the OSM diary, the forum and the
mailinglist in order to give easy access to the important information that
is spread accross the about 500 communication channels that OSM has, without
requiring everything to get posted 500 times and thus allow to keep things
So I think if something like that could be done on the English lists too,
