Currently only people in the AdminGroup have access to edit that page. In 
the future we can look at this. Obviously, We can't open up the Newsletter 
to anyone, it would defy its purpose.

The aim is that as many people can help with the newsletter so everyone is 
invited (as long as they contribute to it some way). But to make the 
Newsletter manageable I prefer if we could give different people the end 
responsibility over different sections. The more people, the less work it 
is for everyone. (One hour per person each week should suffice)

At the moment I am doing this job for the first issues, once we have set 
the course and we have a good team we can reorganize as we like. I plan to 
do a weekly meeting (shouldn't be that long, just a brainstorm session) 
with interested parties after each issues has been published, so we can 
discuss future ideas and hand out work.

I gave you access to the Newsletter #0901 so you can take a peek, it is 
almost finished. Normally we would ask from all contributors to finish up 
on Sunday evening, but since it's a holiday here I gave myself some extra 
freedom :-D (the first issue is definitely the hardest)

We publish on Tuesday noon. Monday is used for final/late editing.
