Hi Sophie, and All

I looked into the above link and tagged links shown with it. I have a
question. What is the "Planet"?

It's a blog aggregation. We get one for the Document Foundation, see
So when I write on my blog, it is displayed on the planet of The Document Foundation, but also on my own blog or the other planets I'm subscribed to.

I have been out of the mainstream of the cutting edge of web page terms,
so I do not know what you mean by using the term of "Planet". So if I
have never heard of this, I assume there has to be others as well.

yes, you're right :)

I could make a guess, but that could easily be wrong.

So could someone explain what the "Planet" concept is? I saw the use of
the link "" as a explanation of the use of the
planet system. But that just tells me that "planet" would be a
sub-domain of the main domain of "" and there will be a
"de" folder/page in that sub-domain. But that really does not tell me
what a "planet" is all about in web page design.

The idea is to get the possibility to aggregate the blogs per language but also have a display of all the language. When we were in the OOo Community, we did settle a planet displaying all the languages. I really like it because it shows the richness and the diversity of our community. But on the language community and users side, it's really more convenient to be able to read a given language.

Kind regards
