I agree with Dhiren here. It might be difficult to produce unique and
interesting content for the duration of one month.

Also, I assume the magazine will be in PDF format?

we can add PDF option but just plain text email would be good for low
bandwidth users.

We can cover;

New Features
Community Events
An Interview
LibreOffice Tips
Success Stories

As a email newsletter, this concept matches perfectly with the idea of an end user-focused 
broadcast email that I've been considering. We would collect user email addresses when they 
download LibO from our site, and add them to our mailing list. 

A precedent for this is the open source project Miro ( ). Click the download 
button on the homepage and you'll start downloading the app. While waiting, the page suggests you 
enter your email address, and they add you to the mailing list. Every month or so, they send a 
newsletter email, in HTML format, with news, reminders, events, etc. It's a good way to keep users 
mindful of the application and project. I think it would work for us too.
