as Germán pointed out, people dind't know you were going to write
that :-) And anyway, I got all that information just from reading the
planets and mailing lists. But yeah, as Germán suggested, local groups
might have to get used to write summaries.

As for the "new contributor for country X", I agree with you we don't
want to do that for every country, but Mongolia was a special case, or
that's what I understood at GUADEC last year.
