[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Evergreen - blog and news aggregator

I've recently built a few personal aggregators for things like
podcasts and blog posts that I'm interested in, and thought that a
nice-to-have for the Evergreen project would be a "Planet Evergreen"
aggregator for blogs and news related to Evergreen.

So, I've put a quick one together at
http://planet-evergreen.coffeecode.net/ - this uses Sam Ruby's "Planet
Venus" aggregator with absolutely no tailoring of the "classic_fancy"
theme, and the planet contains only the feeds that I'm aware of. This
should probably live somewhere like planet.evergreen-ils.org but for
the very short term I'm just interested in:

1) Finding out if the community wants this (and therefore finding out
if it's worth the effort to setting up a new hostname, etc)
2) Finding out if there are other feeds that should be added to the
planet (you can send suggestions on-list or privately); I've tried to
make the feeds as narrow as possible, so if someone blogs about poker
and politics and Evergreen and offers feeds for each subject, as well
as a feed for everything, I've tried to find the Evergreen-only feed
3) Finding out if somebody wants to take over responsibility for this
and spruce up (haha) the design, maintain the feeds, etc
