That's a good idea. In fact, I'd suggest that the roundup posts should
entirely be constructed on the wiki. Any of the members can add anything
relevant they come across, clean the text up, etc. Those members could add
news items themselves. One or more members (Nicolas and Peter?) can act as
editors, performing final cleanup and filtering before publishing.

The majority of the news items tend to be about projects involving existing
members. If those members added the news themselves, the work would be
cleanly distributed.
