So I have to say: sorry for the inconvenience, but I won't roll it out
on the live site without some nimimal testing.

OK, sure. In fact, I was not aware that SilverStripe had both a
blogging module *and* a news module to offer, so it certainly makes
sense to see which is more suitable out of the two.

As regards what one would actually *do* with the news/blogging feature:

I'd see the TDF blog being what most blogs are: a means for various SC
members to talk on a more "personal" level about aspects of their area
of the project and/or TDF role.

For instance, Florian might blog about infrastructure administration
subjects, "mini-projects" he has underway (mail server
re-organization, for instance), etc, to keep the community updated
with progress, or to write about technical options, etc.

Charles might blog about his take on current discussions going on
within the community, etc.

Michael Meeks and Thorsten might blog about technical decisions in
LibreOffice development, or dev team life.

Blog posts are a "more-personal/subjective" channel of communication.

In contrast, the news section would be covering
"more-global" stories / reporting about community/project life:
announcements of new releases; announcements of new partnerships with
companites and organizations, new memberships of organizations,
announcement of official decisions, etc.

The news section could also be a channel for
publishing articles from guest and team contributors, etc.

It would be much more of an "official mouthpiece" for the LibreOffice project.

Similarly, if one were to put under
SilverStripe, and had a news section there, too, it would be an
official mouthpiece for TDF news and announcements, specifically
concerning TDF rather than the LibreOffice project as such. (This is
based on a premise that, at a future time, LibreOffice might be just
one of a number of projects that TDF might foster and operate.)

I'm sure you get the general idea from the above. So that's what I
would have in mind.

What do you think of this as a general proposal?
