It would be nice to have a blog-like CMS (like MT or Blosxom or what 
not) backending the news production so that RSS feeds and the like 
would automatically be there.

There's also some exploration in "shared blogs" serving as a 
discussion/collaboration forum. But seeing how well the wiki seems to 
be generating controversy, I'm not sure it's a good time/place for such 
an experiment here at Apache.

But, for personal blog use—independent space is easy to set up and use 
for blogs of a personal nature. I don't see the need to host blogs of 
the style of mine, or Sam's or Erik's or any of a dozen others of us. 
Therefore, I don't see the need to burden the ASF's resources with 
blogs of this nature.

Dozens of solutions. Definitely a second order question.
