Some valuable content vanish from homepages (same for people.d.o).

I believe that DPLs should promote collaboration.

I personally believe that planet has many undesirable side effects,
especially on collaboration behavior.


PS. No, I don't actually want to shut-down planet ;)     
    No, I am not expecting people to put their opinions under DFSG or PD
    May be some content could be moved to collaborative media, bts, etc
    May be some "I am doing something" post could be turned into a news
    May be that allowing comments should be a best practice
    May be I am not keeping-up with my own standards, so should shut-up!
