Implementation idea for feeds: can haz identi.ca?
22:54< mchua> mmcgrath: Looks good to me - the shortness actually
reminds me of twitter feeds
22:54< mchua> or well, identi.ca
22:54< mchua> so that might be a quick and dirty way of getting
Something That Works to pop in.
22:54< mmcgrath> mchua: yeah, I wasn't sure how long those should be.
22:55< mchua> mmcgrath: I think the one-terse-sentence-(fragment) is
22:55< mchua> Then we can link to longer articles if they're available
- but identi.ca can provide the first-run feeds in, so it could
theoretically work now pre-FI launch.
So I poked these into being:
(feed is at

I cloned the news points Mike picked (more or less) so if someone will
try them out in the start.fp.o-news branch in the fedora-web git repo,
they should, theoretically, Just Work. Iirc, we'd need to ask for
permission to use the Fedora logo as an avatar - but that's the only
further "setup" we'd have.
Both accounts are currently rather bottleneck-y (i.e. if I get hit by a
bus, nobody else could get to those accounts) since they both go to my
email address; we need to figure out a system for handling those sorts
of things in general (or if we have one already, I need to learn to use it).
(Also, is there a FOSS alternative to bit.ly/tinyurl we use? I vaguely
remember seeing one around but can't find it for the life of me; I may
also be imagining things.)
Related to this effort is that we expect that we'll have RSS feeds for
Fedora Insight content. I opened a new ticket on this last Sunday:
Simon reports there are several ways to achieve this, so I will touch
base with him and Hiemanshu and see when next we can get together.
