I missed out on that vote, but FWIW, I have no problem with an aggregator,
or even a hosted blogger for ASF committers; it's at the same level as
http://www.apache.org/~committer/.  Disclaimers suffice.  No policing
needed, though if someone posts another example from www.goatse.cx, I
think the infrastructure@ team reserves the right to step in.

But pulling back, perhaps a way to address Noel's concern is to have this
aggregator only pull content from the RSS feeds that the blogger marks as
somehow being Apache-related.  RSS allows arbitrary metadata, right?  Is
there an easy way to mark a post in most blogger tools as "Apache-related"
or something?  That way someone can rant on and on about their favorite
political subject in their blog, but meanwhile only their Apache-related
posts get aggregated at the ASF's site.
