I have some more questions about the policy:

- is someone allowed to put more than one feed? Like his blog and a foto 
gallery or his personal blog and the news feed from a local Fedora 
community site. Of course one can aggregate his own multiple feeds into 
single one and use that aggregated feed (for example using Google 
Reader, and we can provide a short documentation about doing so). OTOH, 
technically one can put more entries in one .planet file and it should 
be parsed correctly;

- I assume you plan a check of those .planet files against malicious 
use, so they have only the allowed entries (and not, for example, values 
that override the defaults, like the output directory, template 
locations or whatever);

- not sure if this is worth pursuing, but I found gregdek's idea [1] 
interesting: use hackergotchis to create a set of stickers. Here is the 
issue of people wanting/not wanting their images to be used and the 
license of the submitted images.
