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.

As long as it is made clear to the user what they are getting and that it is not required to 
download the program.

Yes, this is a very important point!
