I think this is a great idea. To get this thing working we would need
someone who takes care of this section of the main page. Someone who
decides what to publish, perhaps writes these things and others can
adress when they have a story for the front page. Maybe you David?

BTW did you tell the guys on debian-publicity about your idea? Perhaps
there is someone who wants to manage this or just help with it.

It would be nice if this thing becomes reality soon.
