As far as I understand, there are tasks which could be separated, and
would ease the Planet maintenance:

- Technical maintenance: Removing or temporally disabling feeds which 
  are not available. Updating hackergotchies, etc.
- Editorial maintenance: Keep on eye on planet's readability, accept or 
  reject requests for inclusion, etc.

The first could be done by a small team willing to comaintain the
planet, and require not too much besides good will and a SVN account.
The second one, I think Jeff has done very well so far (leaving out the
fact of him being so busy), and I think things could improve if he
wouldn't need to take care of the first point.
