Hey folks, I'm working on a script to collect blog/name/hackergotchi entries
from users homedirs on fedorapeople.org and assemble them into a config

clearly simple. My only question is this:
  - Should I just have the user put one (or more) planet config stanzas
in a file in their homedir or have them list just the blog feed url, the
hackergotchi url and their name and try to parse that out?

I'm inclined to the former. So a user could just have a .planet file
that has:

name = Seth Vidal
face = http://skvidal.fedorapeople.org/skvidal.png

Add here probably a "language" for when/if we will have language based sub-planets. It is possible to have multiple values, like
language = english, french
for the case when someone blogs about half the time in one language and half in another?

On the topic of multiple values (if possible), how about "group", so we have the possibility of running sub-planet for distinct groups based on their area of activity, like an aggregation of the "art" people, or "developers" or "ambassadors", etc. Like:
group = art, ambassadors, marketing

Would there be a good way to blacklist entries if we needed to in
a rush? Or would we just edit the master config and disable the

I was thinking of just having a 'ignore users' config option for the
script so it would just skip their dirs if there was a problem.

I think this sounds fair.
