Announcing Gentoo Universe
It seems that we have a fairly even split of opinions on whether Planet Gentoo should be strictly for Gentoo and related topics, or whether it should be a full aggregation of more personal articles plus Gentoo articles too.
As a result of this, we’ve decided to launch a second site, Gentoo Universe, which will aggregate all articles (any topic) on participating developers weblogs. This will run alongside Planet Gentoo, which will still remain an aggregation for Gentoo and related articles and will continue as normal.
New contributors will be added to both sites. All existing contributors feeds have been copied over. If you are an existing contributor and would like your feed ‘de-restricting’ on the universe site, please send me an email or catch me on IRC. The only restriction is that all articles should be written in English.
If you host your weblog at http://planet.gentoo.org/developers and would like to also participate in the universe site, let me know, and I will give you the ability to add more categories to your blog. (You still need to keep Gentoo stuff categorised separately so that the original Planet can keep running as normal)
I will announce this on the Gentoo mailing lists and create some internal links between the Planet and Universe fairly soon, but please request to be fully included on the universe site right away.
