We would also provide an installation of Wordpress [5] or a similar weblogging engine, for developers that do not have their own weblog or would wish to move their log to an official Gentoo hosted website. This could be provided at (e.g.) http://weblogs.gentoo.org

Rationale

+

Planetplanet [4] is simply a weblog aggregator written in python. It is executed as a cronjob and fetches content from all the weblogs it has been asked to, postprocesses and aggregates them into a single html file (based on a template), and outputs that html content to an area provided by a webserver. This should allow for ease of integration with any existing infrastructure.

Planetplanet is configurable through a single configuration file, which lists the log feed URL, real name and user name for each contributing developer.
