It's not for wiki. I use the same password across all python.org services,
so I suspect that at least 5% of auditory use the same pattern.

1. I rewrote a news item so you won't have to crack your head
2. No access to any python sites to edit the news
3. There is not enough visibility into the process or any roadmap, so I
(like other people) can't see what to help with
4. My help is not welcome here

I write this only because nobody else raised this point, and I shouldn't
write this to ML directly anyway.
