Re: user-added planet script

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

[http://skvidal.wordpress.com/feed/]
name = Seth Vidal
face = http://skvidal.fedorapeople.org/skvidal.png


which I could read in using configparser, throw out errors about any
duplicates and also balk if someone tries to over [Planet] or something
like that.

so, I wanted some feedback on what people thought would be the better
choice.

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.
