Are there?...

Well, the idea of an aggregator was brought up before. But I actually
like the idea of a shared blog more.

I think in this case, centralization is actually useful: It helps
creating the required critical mass.

There is mine,


which isn't exactly about the Hurd, but mostly revolves about
Hurd-related topics.

Well, I assume it does have some kind of very primitive console, for
debug output. But not anything near a shell, if you mean that.

Indeed, the News listing on Savannah is a pain to update (like about
anything on Savannah :-( ).

We only use Savannah for the trackers, and the CVS repository.

There is no single place. Some things can be found in the Savannah
trackers, some in the mailing list archives, some in IRC logs.

Basically, the only way to keep track on that, is following things as
they happen :-(

Sure, it would be great -- if someone would actually update it
regularily :-) Just creating a page unfortunately won't help... Trust
me, that was attempted before ;-)
