It is already possible to have Debian Planet poll only one selected
category from a blog. I use this to have only articles with category
"Debian-English" appear on Debian Planet, not only because I usually
blog in German.

I gather that it should be possible to have articles from multiple
categories appear on the Planet either by appropriately arranging the
categories in a hierarchy or by multiple entries in the Planet
configuration (one per category).

otoh, it is nice (for me) to see the non-Debian-related opinions of my
fellow developers on the Planet, so I feel that the Planet would lose
some of its appeal when it only has Debian-related articles. So some
categorization on the Planet itself would be a good idea, really.
