Well, currently the plan is to release it on the wiki. I have no easy way 
of converting it to something that would email easily, but what we could 
do is either send the link/summary to the centos-announce mailing list 
and/or create a seperate centos-newsletter mailing list with the sole 
purpose of inviting people to read the Newsletter on the wiki.

I know some people prefer to get an email about it, so I do think we 
should allow people to subscribe.

(I discussed briefly with Ralph and we would set up a centos-newsletter 
mailing list where we send a summary and a link to the newsletter so 
people are reminded)

That section does indeed exist. I dubbed the section "CentOS in the 
Spotlight" and I would take the stuff from MediaSighings and look what 
Google Alert has send me the last 2 weeks (which was meager :-/).

If you are interested in owning that section, let me know. I was planning 
to provide the links, but also comment a little bit on it (either 
summarize or opinionate).

No date has been set, it depends mostly on the participants to set a 
workable schedule.
