We definitely can have the french DD one, sure, has enough people.
I look into that tomorrow somewhen.
The users one: It would be the first. Right now Planet is defined as
| Planet Debian is for any active and directly involved participant in the
| Debian development community. Inclusion in Planet should reflect a
| relationship that already exists -- it is not meant to create
| one. Inclusion is not restricted to people who are currently Debian
| developers nor are ex-developers necessarily barred from inclusion.
That is, people actively involved in Debian. Users are nice, but don't
So we would either need to come up with a new definition for the users
part (and clearly communicate that) or "just" reword the above if we
want users planet. Though if we do that I would want something along the
lines that users blogposts need to have Debian as a topic.
Otherwise we most probably end up with some (l)users demanding access as
"I'm a user of Debian, add me" just to spam it with
And I really don't want us to regularly police the planets and judge the
entries. Which I fear might happen if we open this up too far and
announce it widely that it exists.
I'm not against it, but I sense bad stuff possibly to happen. :()
