Just as an idea, I think an absolutely fantastic regular update on OSM
things is the Weekly blog (http://www.weeklyosm.eu/). I'm not sure who
manages it and if it has any formal affiliation with OSMF (the about links
send me to some seemingly unrelated websites), but it does a wonderful job
of summarising discussions, technical tips, news, and a lot of other things
about OSM. It's exactly the type of a regular update that I think a lot
people who express increasing interest in OSM by joining OSMF would be
interested in. Perhaps its contents could be disseminated through a mailing
list with autosubscription for new OSMF members?
