Disagree, planet gnome is a front for all of gnome, as such it would
make sence to follow the NewAccounts process that is used for shell
accounts and svn access - sure it might be a lengthly process but
at least its transperent, requests are granted by a team that is
comprised of other contributors like you and me. This is much 
different than making it the domain of a single module/maintainer.

Curiously, why does that suck ?

Not everybody likes to make a hobby out of writing a personal journal, some 
people who do not share this journaling hobby otoh do have interesting 
things to post to a planet with a specific audience.

How are those people's blogs less valuable ?
