Noted for next time.

I've taken the TechNews template and changed it for my purposes. I've tried
to keep it similar as much as I could do.
Please add your comments to the Template talk page to improve that.

How to define the collaboration team is not that easy because of our broad
I've added the concerned products, which may be helpful for readers.

Good catch. I can't hide the paternity of that newsletter.

For the context, that's a *very* regular discussion on French Wikipedia.
I don't know how important that problem is in English language.

I’d also say some more time for doing the translation could help (as

What would be your suggestion? A 5 days to one week delay would help?

With your feedback, it will be better! ;)

Thanks a lot,
