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:
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.

Yes, such a section surely would be interesting. But my question is
rather towards the technology behind, thus please give the blog and/or
news module a try to see whether it fits at all.

So far the reason for blog/news is that it takes away the burden to
manually create a structure, "fire and forget" - just create the page
and leave organizing the pages (what to show where, manage archive,
etc) to the module/cms. So yes, for this it makes sense.

So please play with it on the staging site.
