Consensus or at least a majority :-) After all discussion, I think that's 
what has to happen - someone who wants this to happen should call for a 
vote, otherwise we'll never know. 

Probably it would be good to split this into separate issues:
- private blogs for commiters 
- agregating blogs ( or subsets ) from the apache community.

The second is a very different and IMO more important issue. I feel
a lot of content and information will move from mailing lists to blogs.
It is already happening - with good and bad effects ( I'll probably 
post a blog about this :-). Putting this information togheter and
making it accessible may be _very_ important for the community
and apache projects.

I don't know how difficult is this - but blogs may become at 
least as important as the mailing lists.
