I think that would be splendid, Don. :)

I'd be happy to help out with getting this set up. I'm in favor of using
Apache's blog infrastructure, at least at first, since it's ready to go and
explicitly for this purpose. I like the sense of place it provides, vs. a
loose topic on G+ / elsewhere.

- I'm not a fan of just posting links to articles elsewhere. There should
be at least a short, complete passage for each post with a link to the full
thing, if not a full repost.
- Lazy approval sounds fine to me, since a PMC member has to post the
content anyway.
