So, essentially, you want to know a team of people on which you'll
instantiate the ack/nack idea. That's fine by me. The only issue is how
to bootstrap that, as none hasn't yet contributed to blog.d.o (as we
don't have it yet :-)). I guess we can simply start with calling for
volunteers and, after a first few rounds of posts / editorial work will
see who is actually contributing and who is not. Does that make sense to

FWIW, I volunteer as editor (and I'm also ready to be kicked out
brutally at the first "reality check" of contributions, once you'll
discover I've been doing nothing :-P).
