If you click on the News item in the left column of the www.osgeo.org page,
it should take you to an archive of news items.  Included at this top of this
is a link to a page on submitting news item.  Basically just email them to
news_item at osgeo.org and Jo Walsh or I as news editors will work on getting
them on the news page as appropriate.

Note, this process is relatively new (just operating for a few weeks).  I'd
also be keen on having someone new take my position as News Editor.  It's a
pretty easy task for someone interested in contributing taking over without
having to know all the others of details of what is going on.

I'll also try and add an item on the FAQ about submitting news items.
