I re-read http://perkypants.org/blog/2005/06/10/1118362980/ and it
mentions the possibility of making the SVN module essentially a

guidelines as to what a suitable blog is (though if we want to keep all
the current feeds, simply "is vaguely a contributor to GNOME and tends
to post in English" is about appropriate). For p.g.o I think it has
worked really well to *not* have strictly GNOME content; I'm sure many
people appreciate ocassional cool pictures from a music festival or sexy
If you are feeling super-paranoid, we can have a "Planet" module on
bugzilla, and we can point people to a page with instructions:
1. Get a bugzilla account.
2. File a bug under the Planet module.
3. A number of Trusted People(tm) get automatically CCed on the bug;
this can be yourself and other old fogeys.
4. We debate to death on the bug itself, so that the requester can be
aware of why his blog is / is not appropriate.
5. The blog gets added to the SVN module.
Though I prefer the first option: simply have some guidelines, and let
people figure things out by common sense / meritocracy / whatever.
