I have no problem with PMCs having weblogs as part of their public 
face.  I am concerned that this diverts attention from the code and the 
cooperative work on that code.  I prefer that oversight of this remain 
encapsulated with the PMC and that individual PMC make the decision if 
they have the bandwidth to do that oversight.

I liked like to see some experimentation with PMC blogs where for 
example all of some selected kind are allowed to post.  I think that 
would be interesting to see how it works.  I'm concerned that if the 
'selected kind' was a dozen people only one or two would post and that 
would give the impression that those one or two had a unique voice in 
that PMC.  That said I think it could be an interesting experiment.

I think it's premature for big leap of faith that blogs.apache.org or 
some similar would make things function more smoothly.

Another good example of why this might be best left to the PMCs.

I'd very much prefer something with a compatible license.  Something I 
we can all provide patches for.
