[pydotorg-www] A new planet for user group blog postings!

Hi all,

I've been speaking with Doug Hellmann recently about setting up a new planet
(blog feed aggregater) for Python user group blog feeds.

The idea would be to augment the efforts of
http://python-groups.blogspot.com/ (not to impugn their work!) and provide a
way to get some good user group buzz going. (It's kind of a lot to ask of
user groups to make "special" blog entries on
http://python-groups.blogspot.com/ whereas it's reasonable to assume a user
group can setup their own blog and post to it, I think? Or at least I could
easily send a feed to it from http://blog.aclark.net, for example, relating
to ZPUGDC's activities.)

I'd like to volunteer to do this work. Now, I don't know anything about the
Python community's infrastructure, but I am currently serving as
"infrastructure team" leader in the Plone community  (
http://admins.plone.org). I have a system administration background (
http://aclark.net/resume) and I'd love to help! :-)


P.S. I also don't have a lot of free time, but I'm willing to make the time
and commitment over the new few months, for example.
