Well, I just jumped right in.  

So, we want the blog to be the official voice of the project in some way?

Is that a requirement?  Is that what we want?  I thought that is what web sites are for. 
Blogs have a different kind of voice in my experience.

I have lots of outlets for blogging, and I could always create an Apache-oriented RSS feed
for aggregation, although probably not, since it doesn't seem like that much fun. 

Ah well,

 - Dennis

Gavin, Thanks!

There is a page that describes how to prepare and preview a blog post. [1]

Authors should read this and begin to put together our announcement.

The page states "A typical process is to create the blog post, set it up to publish in 3-4
days via the "Advanced Settings", then post the modified preview URL to your dev@ list with
the anticipated publish date for lazy consensus."
