Bug#323227: new list: debian-planet to distribute planet.debian.org postings; archive to enable searching

Package: lists.debian.org
Severity: wishlist


I'd like to have a debian-planet list that would receive blog postings
from planet.debian.org.

The main reason is that after postings expire on the planet website,
it's very hard to find old postings if you cannot remember who wrote
it. Think of "there was some nice sh script snippet" or "someone
pointed to that great package". Now you have to manually browse all
feeds or hope for google. Having a regular list archive on
lists.debian.org would solve this.

Joey has already set up a list for that privately, but it is not
archived publically. Providing that service from lists.debian.org
would recognize the importance of planet.debian.org to Debian culture.

I'm Cc'ing this to debian-devel so that people can comment if they'd
rather like their blog not to get archived elsewhere. (IMHO this
shouldn't be a problem since they want the content on
planet.debian.org, but maybe others think differently.)
