I am yet to hear about a TeX package that can handle a News Paper,
though magazines are not a problem. But switching from WYSIWYG
publishing systems to TeX is a non-trivial job as the page makeup
process is built upon diametrically opposite paradigms.

I reliably learnt that the New Indian Express did a lot of work to
switch their newspaper production entirely on GNU/Linux and indeed
they wrote their own typesetting system, I am curious to know their
current status.
