+1 all around.  I would love to see planet.apache.org doing the
auto-aggregation for any committers who opt-in, and to let committers
know about it.

After the holidays I'm done giving new talks at conferences, so I hope
to be able to at least help document these kinds of setups, so that
ComDev can do a better job of maintaining them.

It sounds like if Sam can draft the code for puppet/original setup of
Venus on a ComDev VM (same as feathercast seems fine, unless I'm missing
something about VM performance) I can assist Rich in finishing app
configuration and bringing over any still-live blog entries, etc.

Serious Puppet skills are likely to remain rare outside of infra, but
once something is running with a default config - and we have a
consistent place to document ComDev tools - it feels like we'll succeed
now with our new energy.
