Yes!  I set everything up about 2 days ago for this month's attempt (it 
happens on the 13th).  From here on out, only the pointer and the readme 
will be posted to all groups.  There's also a modified "intro to the 
newsgroups" pointer that will start appearing on the usual 4x per month 
cycle... you can preview it on the FAQ web page right now

Personally, I'd like to see the PMDD issues deepen a little bit before 
being added to a FAQ... but that's as the voice of the low-pass filter 
FAQ maintainer.  But I do agree, one "nutrient hole" in the plant FAQ is 
definitely fertilizers.  

Sounds good to me.  Go write it!  :)
