I think the case of the DWN was different because it resulted in very
long long posts agregated to planet. This was not a surprised because
there were written in a bulletin format and not blog format. The resulting
posts in planet were somehow strange and felt out of place because of this.
Also, they had their own distribution channel already:
via website http://www.debian.org/News/
via mail http://lists.debian.org/debian-news/
both channel previous to the existence of planet, so maybe people felt planet
was for something different.
