I wonder if any of the projects out there have some kind of easily editable files to generate N&N documents from. Sure - we could use HTML, but editing HTML documents has serious drawbacks (most notably the mingling of content and representation). I'd best love some kind of DocBook approach...
In WTP we use an XSL transform driven through Phoenix to create them. It's not perfect, as the committers still have to write HTML body content for each item, but the overall layout and styling at least became consistent (http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/development/news/). Oddly enough I still author the XML to point to a transform that produces output that look exactly like the Eclipse Project's --it's our PHP scripts that use a different Phoenix-styled XSL.
One question that's been bothering me for a while is that the Galileo Must Do list under Releng - New & Noteworthy mentions a corollary that "individual new & noteworthy should be linked in to the collective New & Noteworthy. " A collective document would surely be impressive, but where would that be, exactly? Does it exist? Should we have been building it with each milestone? And will we have one for the Release itself?
