Yeah well. Planet is "for any active and directly involved participant
in the Debian development community.", which kind of implies
personal. But we made exceptions in the past, like for loldebian or the
DebConf or DSA blog. I think the basic requirement there was that we can
easily identify who posted it (like an Author: line in the post), and
that it fulfills all other requirements of Planet.

If thats true for news.debian.net, ie the "published by" line is in the
rss feed too, fine, add.
