Full ACK. That's what makes Planet Debian interesting to me. I would
prefer if people did NOT restrict their feeds for Planet Debian to only
contain Debian related posts.


P.S.: I think that some way to faciliate the exclusion of some posts or
feeds for particular readers (like Myon http://www.df7cb.de/debian/planet/)
would be a great thing and solve the problem.
