I'd be in favor of a more structured, regular approach for the "miki" 
(wiki magazine) ... I think the structure would provide a more 
consistent and valuable archive that would help newbies to PmWiki learn 
about it's capabilities.  However, that approach would require one or 
more regular editors to compile articles into the various regular sections.

We could use Categories to create a pool of pending / approved articles, 
so in the near future hopefully the editor(s) have a large selection to 
choose from and will not be chasing down articles or having to write the 
magazine/"miki" itself. (BTW, is that name catching on yet? :) )  The 
editors then simply change the category to reflect the "issue" that the 
article appears in, and edit the Category home page to create the Table 
of Contents / overviews.

What "sections" would everyone like to see?  Interview, Success Story / 
Site Profile, Tech Tips, Q & A (perhaps taken from the mailing list, 
similar to what WebProNews does with their forums), and of course a 
Donate button in each issue for Pm ;)
