I wonder if this control in itself is a source of frustration to some
people who've been contributing code to the gnome project and want
to brag about it on planet gnome, when we say that "we have editorial
control", who exactly should be qualifying as "we" ?

I wonder if this editorial control might come across a little 
friendlier if it were delagated to a marketing/web team that
people can freely volunteer to be a part of.

Just an added idea, what if:
  - potential planet poster write's an email to the appropriate
    archived ML (something like marketing-list or web-list ?)
  - bonus points for having someone to vouch for you that is
    already on planet
  - 2 approvals from the "<insert flavour> team" (kind of
    like freeze breaks) merits being added
