Doing that will be still a lot of entries. If Russel can write up a
short news entry every 2 or 3 weeks, linking his recent blog posts, that
would be great, and I hope that won't be too much work.

The current accounce list has a single mail in every few weeks and I'm
happy about it. I mean no silense for two months between a final release
and pre2; OTOH there are no mails there every day. It would be nice to
keep that traffic.
