Sounds good to me. But I think we should all get the relevant
permissions so that in case of illness or other absence we're not
stymied. It would be good to spread out all the editorial duties and
document them clearly in the Workflow so that there's no potential
bottleneck.  ThomasChung did an amazing job producing first
FedoraNews.org and the FedoraWeeklyNews all these years and his absence
has resulted in a lack of momentum (which I hope we're now making up.) 
Anyway, I'd like it if we can move to being a Redundantly Distributed
Editor so that we're buffered against any further vagaries.

OK.  I've updated the Wiki to indicate that. I also started trying to
expand the page a bit.  In the course of this I noticed that we've been
misspelling Huzaifa's name[1].  Sorry about that Huzaifa.

Great, thanks Pascal.  I don't think we should restrict ourselves to the
ambassador list though.  We should ask on each list which lacks a Beat
