384In the event of a contributing Gentoo developer leaving the project, their log
385would be removed from the aggregation. If their log was hosted by ourselves,
386it would be closed. For this reason, some developers may choose to host their
387log elsewhere - this is not a problem and is left to the decision of the
388individual developers.</p>
389<p>It is true that the addition of the planet to our website collection would add
390yet another source of Gentoo information to our collection; our users and
391developers are already overwhelmed with IRC, mailing lists, forums, and the
392central website. In contrast, a lot of information is currently replicated
393over those mediums, but the planet would provide a taste of something new.
394Developers can choose their own topics and are free to write about things that
395perhaps would not fit into our existing communication mediums. Additionally,
396the planet will attempt to bring some existing content together by linking to
397recent commits, bug lists, and dev.gentoo.org webspace for each contributing
398developer.</p>
