In automated editing, text summarization plays an important role when creating the digests of contents; the digest helps users find the desired information quickly. In our automated editing system that makes FAQ-like information packages from the USENET articles, summaries are extracted from original articles. Extracted summaries are useful for selecting the desired information, however, they can be improved into more appropriate summaries to the package. In this paper, we discuss the limitations of the current summary-extraction method, and propose employment of rewriting as a solution.
