If DSA does not want to host a wordpress, then let's go then for non-DSA
hosting. This does not mean blog.d.o have to stay forever away from Debian 
machines, but currently I am more motivated in working to launch all this 
that spend several weeks trying to look how to fit the needs listed by DSA.

In some months, when the service has been working more officialy advertised
and maybe changed a bit in some points (people joining can make a big 
difference), we can reevaluate this decision.

I am a bit confused for this, it is pretty much what is already just 
changing the name from news to blog and updating the workflow to encourage
DDs contributing news posts. Do I understand correctly?

I am OK with the name change from news.d.n to blog.d.o to make it official,
but I do not see the advantange of switching from news.d.n to blog.d.n.
(Actually, blog.d.o|n make it looks like a blog service for DDs that is 
very different of our goal)
Maybe it is worthwhile starting another thread about this?
