My thoughts initially (not sure if I actually *said* anything about it
though) were to find some posts we liked, vote which we wanted to
publish for the week then contact the person who wrote it and see if
they minded. This might help out with people wanting to be part of
marketing and the magazine. Was also thinking we could get a badge made
for it :)

In response to Zoltan, I think the package selection is a great idea. I
was actually pondering something similar. I've learned a great deal
from the Python Module of the Week [1] and thought it might be fun
(though time consuming) to do something with Fedora packages or tools -
like deltaisos. Those are awesome.

Test days I'm working to get more coverage of for sure. Good thoughts
all around I think.
