Debian RT: blog.debian.org

Beloved DSA,
  this ticket is meant to keep track of the status of setting up
blog.debian.org , a public-facing machine meant to host the official
blog of the Debian project.

Below you can find a summary of what I believe has been agreed upon
after discussions in the past months, up to and including DebConf11.

- The machine will be DSA-administered.

- It will run (the most recent incarnation of) Movable Type as blogging

  The rationale of the choice is a compromise among the need of having
  blog-friendly features (usable comments, trackbacks, etc.) and having
  a platform that supports a static HTML cache of all pages.

- The blogging software itself will be administered by people of the
  publicity team (still to be identified).

- In the long run, blog.d.o might be plugged into LDAP authentication
  and allow all DDs to write draft blog posts that will be reviewed by
  the publicity team before publishing.

I know that work has already been started on this, and I hereby thank
DSA for that.
