We've had two -1s for auto-posting, so I'd suggest a bit of a modification:

1) Let everything from Community Blog auto-post to @fedoracommunity, but
make the profile clear that's exactly what it is. No effort to build
following there but if it grows organically, spiffy.

2) Explicitly add Community Blog to sources for human-curated content
going to @fedora.

                              # # #

Also, can we get a sound-off on the humans who currently *are* curating
content? It feels a bit wild west to me at the moment, as I'm never
quite sure if there's anybody at the switch on a particular day.

And is anybody tending to @replies to @fedora?
