"I doubt the intended audience for the newsletter would have a clue about RSS. It's intended for a wider audience of Mozilla users that don't look at the various Mozilla websites and forums."

I think that it's silly to dismiss RSS as something that only Mozilla users visiting the various Mozilla websites and forums would use. RSS is slowly but surely replacing email and newsgroups as a mechanism for newsletter-like distribution. It costs virtually nothing and there are millions of users with RSS readers who don't want to subscribe to a mailing list and risk the spam, who don't already read Mozillazine or the other Mozilla information sources and would enjoy following Mozilla via an RSS feed.
