Yes. We are going to have a Planet setup. We may set a rule as to what
goes where? (I'd leave the official blog to board/council and marcom
team as such; and owned blogs to everyone in their own name, to be
reported/linked to Mageia).

Yep. For that, we need to know who can lead this and what is needed
for everything to work (people, tools, legal requirements, style).

Sounds great. Do you have a specific description of this setup, how it
would work? (roles, repositories, tools - those may be existing
webapps or providers as well).
