Most of the time all I do to get feature articles is e-mail developers to ask if they have something interesting to write, ask 
some questions to give them ideas about what they could write and then they do all the writing. After receiving that all I do is 
check the spelling and such before placing it in an issue. So I feel that the developer who wrote it deserves the credit more 
than the person who prepares it for the Digest, besides that the names of the persons who worked on the Commit Digest are 
already in the top right corner, sorted by the size of their contribution. That is enough credit for me already.
