They mention what happened, who's contributing, and such. Would love to 
see somebody in our community initiating something similar.

I like the idea. We could also write a small web application for developers save description each time a significant modification is done. So, in the end of week it just gets published by generating the contents of the blog post from the database contents. Unlike the system to this forum contents must be editable include formatting of course, etc. Who likes the idea? I don't know if there's better tools around to do something like this, if so, ignore this. A bit off-topic, why do we need to use this thread system? also too slow(IMHO) it doesn't allow very simple things like edit or basic formatting, so far I know.

We could make a start by throwing up a blog somewhere, maybe just Wordpress or Blogger, and post things on there. Whatever would make it easy to either use Markdown or paste in some HTML. I think the big question is to ask, "Who will run the blog?" It would have to be someone who watches a lot of pull requests, issues, threads, and so on. Someone who also has the time available to write a short post each week.

I would say we need to go a step further and ask who wants to be the marketing manager for the D community? From there is just needs somebody who is willing to write up e.g. pull requests summary. The marketing manager could polish it.

It's not so much "Marketing Manager" (I'd say) as internal team building. To give the contributors recognition for their participation, as well as keeping users up to date about who's doing what.

I agree that it is more for internal use. But for all intensive purposes others will see it, and may be the difference between a company seeing a sloppy looking change summary and looking at a professional one. And at any rate, don't we want to really showcase and give their work the justice it deserves?

This is somewhat timely... I regularly read TWiR, and I've been considering trying out something similar for D for the past few weeks (with an IMO pithier title, "What's New in D"). I've been waiting until I'm a bit less busy at work to write up a draft of a hypothetical first issue and present it to the community for comments/suggestions, so I guess I'll move that up on my D todo list.

Poke me if you need some help with gathering actual topics to pay attention to - I am doing full parsing of NG / GitHub DMD anyway so it won't cost me any more time on top.

Sure, where can I reach you at? I could've sworn that there's some way to see emails through the forum interface...

I usually check gmane archives when looking for NG e-mails. Anyway, public dicebot.lv
