Hi all, thanks for the helpful links and comments.
Regarding translation, it has been broken on that page for several months now, Anna. I don't have enough familiarity with those tempermental translation tags to figure it out, but any community expertise would be very welcome :)
With the holidays here in the US, Nichole was eager to get the newsletter out before most of us went on vacation. I apologize for the break in departure and any confusion that came from it.
In general, most of us on my team will be pretty quiet until January 3. I know that Nichole started a conversation about the future direction of the newsletter separately, and we still welcome input there. Anna is right to note that it's happening on list and not on wiki, which perhaps was an oversight. If anyone wants to migrate or start a discussion on wiki, please do! (And ping us!) Otherwise we can resume in the new year.
In the meantime, please enjoy the updates from Israel, Greece, Norway, Macedonia, Germany and Basque Country. It's a great way to end the year, and I'm excited to see what 2017 has in store for us :)
Happy holidays to those who celebrate, and happy new year!
