Is this private list available for other people to subscribe to? At
the very least, can we document this?

It sounds like a number of people would be happier with with this both
as an unofficial service and a non-public archived list. If Joey is
not happy with running this, I'm happy to set up the rss2email program
on a list at my own site. 

Of course, it's not clear to me if there is a name suggestion other
than "debian-planet" that would make an official list possible. I
still tend to think this would be the best situation.
