On the idea of testing workflows for the news.fp.o site, and whether
this needs to involve the test instance, Karsten says:
> It could be that we don't have a new workflow to test. For example, FWN
> is done entirely on the wiki, so a blog engine is just a delivery
> mechanism -- paste content, add appropriate category, publish.
Thomas, others, what do you think about this?

* Press Releases/Announcements
* Stories (I think this equals Fedora Fundamentals or whatever has been
decided for the name!)

> * Those results we use for discussion, sparking more ideas, etc.
So, do people have thoughts about these bullets? Things you'd like to do
with news.fp.o? Reply and lets see if there are things that need testing
or whether the workflow is pretty self-explanatory!
