For those interested Reinhard and I have made a small start on the 
configuration of Daisy to manage news items in the 2.2 docs. The output 
needs to be "prettied up" - but it does work.

Basically, create a new document of type "NewsItem" and publish it (or 
get an editor to publish it for you). The seven most recent will appear 
on the welcome page [1]

I've added a tagging system that allows filtered news items to appear on 
welcome pages for "sub-sites" for each block. The tags field is free 
form, you can enter anything you want. We can use this field to filter 
news items.

At present there is only one tag that does anything. If you add "core" 
to the tags your news item will appear on the "core" sub-site [2]

[I'm not too familiar with the intended use of the cdocs layout can 
someone check I put this in the right place.]

Sorry I've not added news filters for all of the blocks or added the 
"lazy consensus" date filter to the queries - no time today - maybe 
someone can do this.
