great - that's very good for organising OSGeo 1/2007.
I changed bits and pieces on the wiki-pages. 
We have to discuss the context of each section, to avoid confusion and then 
assign each section to one editor. 
Tyler, I would propose you as OSGeo-Newsletter head, who announces release, 
call for articles and asks each Edt. to be ready in time.... not a lot of 
work, "just" to keep the overview ,-)

I would feel more comfortable if the majority of OSGeo-Edt. are not GRASS 
users/developers, this might lead to a wrong impression in the OSGeo 
community. However I think that this bias will not hamper a broad diversity 
of articles.
