In my opinion we could do it this way.

i) Two or three categories/measures for importance.
30 points for a new port
20 points for ???
10 points for a new development started (for example for a new payload),
an event coreboot participates, documentation releases

ii) When 60 points (or another threshold) are reached or if a month
past, we should publish the newsletter.
