Newsletter issue announcements should be formatted in a more human-readable way
Open, LowPublic


The current list of issue announcements in the Newsletter extension read very much like a system log with action, date, and user information first, and the actual context of the announcement last.

The order of each announcement should not "bury the lede" and be arranged so that readers (and publishers) can quickly see the context of past issue publications topics

You are right, but I believe the current list of issue announcements is literally a log. Does someone know how difficult would be to parse this information as @Ckoerner suggests?
