Hi,
This is the first of a weekly newsletter designed to let the world know the 
interesting stuff thats happening in the Jabber Community. This newsletter
will soon be available as a RSS channel, please stay tuned. We will also point to
RSS channels of individual projects and JIG's(Jabber interest groups).
