I think we agree on this, but I don't understand in which way what
you're proposing is a lower threshold than what I was proposing. I think
that a couple of acks will be perfect as well.

Thinking about "nack" again, we can probably avoid carving them in
stone. After all, for dents we haven't ever mentioned "nack", but people
with access to the identi.ca account are generally considerate enough to
avoid denting something which has been shown as controversial on the IRC

This will be addressed by the Oauth-based authentication mechanism I've
mentioned that, AFAIU, will be plugged into Debian's LDAP. I understand
that guest accounts will be allowed as well. Which permissions we set
for them, will be up to what the Publicity team decides to do with that.

Has anyone else comments on this proposal?  While the blog.d.o machine
is not ready yet, deciding how to use it can easily go in parallel with
its setup.
