Im not proposing an impossible. Right now the way the website is being
held is "hey i think this should be in the website", then somebody who
has access and can commit changes, makes the change and thats all. So
the websites is quickly getting into lots of "small" ideas with no
common goal in mind.

Thats something to discuss and is one of the reason of this efforts.
Does really the planet need to be in the front page?... why?... wouldnt
that make having planet.fedoraproject.org useless?... if we have the
planet on the frontpage then why would we need planet.fedoraproject.org?

This kind of questions are the ones that we need to answer in order to
focus the web (fp.o) to achive A goal. And i say A goal and not THE goal
because currently there is no goal for the website, there is just lot of
ideas together ( i think im repeating myself... )
