Excerpts from Alexandre Prokoudine's message of 2011-02-23 14:01:10 +0100:
But the question is whether the whole writing stuff is necessary and
adds something. Social networks are general purpose, not special
purpose. Writing stuff there is additional effort.

Each of those will be used by some people at most, so do you want to tie
them all together? Basing everything on a single service such as github
will force people to choose between exclusion or adoption of said
service, a really bad idea. The benefit of github and similar is that
commits and other stuff that happens can be monitored so the dev doesn't
need to expend additional effort to let people know what he's doing.

There could be a catch-all mailinglist. For rss and the likes, there
are aggregators like planet (which is in use already, for example:
http://planet.linuxaudio.org/ [but includes stuff like Traktor...])
> I've served several years as social hub for free
I do agree that it should be open for related fields, but there should
be some barriers IMHO, simply because I don't think closed source
non-linux development would add anything (just an example, because of
that Traktor review. I'd be pissed to see stuff like this).
