At one point we talked about giving more teams access to
http://www.openstack.org/blog/ but I think someone pointed out it would
be just as easy for folks to post on their on blogs and syndicate to
planet.openstack.org. Your point about things being deleted makes some
sense, though.

Our specs repos have RSS feeds thanks to yasfb, so it would be
relatively straightforward to set up similar repos for "blogs" based on
that. There are any number of sphinx-based static site generators that
would let us reuse our existing infrastructure and tools for building
team web sites if yasfb doesn't have all of the features we need.
