A weekly edition restricted to subscribers for a week would be a good incentive to subscribe.
I agree. People don't realize what they have until it's gone, and LWN consistently produces content that's not available on other sites. Having the Weekly addition delayed a week for nonsubscribers is a good way to generate continued interest in subscriptions.
Another alternative is to publish an abridged version of the weekly edition for nonsubscribers, similar to the approach used by debka.com, but toned down a bit on the "subscribe now!" links. I think the key is to generate continued interest in subscriptions.
