Greetings lists,

I have started a newspaper (not newsletter) focused
on interesting reads on Python mailing lists. Don't tag
on the fact that holiday seasons are the worst times for
launch according to marketing folks, I started this to note
down interesting mails. This might also be a great way to
bring mailing list gems to a wider readership. So, here's
the url https://pyherald.com/

Kind Regards,

Something like [LWN](https://lwn.net/) for Python? Neat.

Two suggestions:

1. Could you add an RSS or Atom feed?

2. CSS «word-break: break-all» seems like a really weird choice for
English language text. If you really want to break words across
lines, use «hyphens: auto».

Added RSS:

2.0 unless later versions have some advantages:

Now I have a concern. For the RSS feed. Does your client filter by the
latest
item or pubDate? I published another edition yesterday but noticed that
the item was not the latest in the list.

Kind Regards,

Well, this one is a newspaper as opposed to being a newsletter.

Newsletters are a collection of links. See

AwesomePython
PythonWeekly
PyCoders Weekly

Newspapers also contain articles, the above don't.

As some mails pointed out above, this is like
the lwn of Python

I have been avoiding the topics and formats used by existing
newsletters by focusing on news among others.

But its funny to see one of them starting to cover news
by writing an external article on a website they own
then link it in the newsletter. It's what you call
competition i guess XD

The focus of this one is and remains mailing lists / discuss platforms.
A look at the archives and you can see publishing
interesting mails. Something you don't have with newsletters.

The main aim of it is getting myself updated with
discussions and pep status and sharing it with the world.
Something i feel i was not getting with existing resources.
I had cool tutos/articles, new libs, popular posts,
job openings, events but not a complete overview
of meta posts.

On the news side i was wrong as newsletters have been covering it since
long on a monthly basis, but not as in depth as it should be but awesome
job though. Else i have been going through early archives but the quality
of postings are not very great. The mailing lists have made awesome
progress over the years! Now the topics are very serious, the conversations
contribute much. Keep it up!
