http://news.meego.com aims to aggregate all the relevant MeeGo news sources and extract the best of it through community promotion and editorial work.
We are not quite there yet, but we want to have everything ready before the MeeGo 1.2 release.
The News section is reachable from several meego.com homepage blocks and the "News" item in the top navigation bar. It is made of different types of content. http://news.meego.com needs to combine them all in an efficient and nice looking way.
To be defined:
The Media team is made of a small group of people responsible of
The proposal is to coordinate the work of this group through a private mailing list. The topics discussed need certain confidentiality before the publication of the news. No big secrets are discussed here. No NDAs must be signed to become a Media team member. Any topics about the Media team itself are discussed in the meego-community mailing list.
New members can join the team via invitation, either from the Extended Media team or MeeGo stakeholders with high media activity.
Media team's access to the MeeGo News system is managed via membership of the MeeGo Media Team Midgard group.
The Extended Media team is made of regular contributors following the MeeGo community channels and highlighting the remarkable news. In practice, they write blog posts aggregated to news.meego.com and/or microblog from an accounted watched by the @meegocom Twitter account.
To be defined: this has some similarities with http://www.mwkn.net/ - potential collaboration?
Members Add yourself to the list below indicating your blog or Twitter account, and the MeeGo project channel you are following and reporting about. Make sure your blog is aggregated and/or your Twitter accouint is listed by @meegocom
To be considered: if your Twitter account is very noisy then your might bring us more work than help.
Some ideas looking for feedback:
PS: vaguely inspired by the light process behind MWKN http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo_Weekly_News
Everybody likes the principle of news written by the community. It seems that everybody actually likes the http://maemo.org/news system, combining over hundred sources that get promoted or demoted based on user input (thumbs up & down) and karma from several sources e.g. del.icio.us, technorati... read more
But it will take us a while to implement something like that in meego.com. In the meantime we can start aggregating blogs and other MeeGo specific news sources.
Drupal includes an Aggregation module out of the box: http://drupal.org/handbook/modules/aggregator There is an official module that resembles a PlanetPlanet, but do we really need the extra maintenance for that? http://drupal.org/project/udplanet
The maemo.org Midgard team has prepared a deployment of using Maemo's Midgard-based Social News system for MeeGo News. The system uses the regular meego.com accounts (though not yet sessions pending for Single sign-on deployment) via LDAP.
The deployment consists of:
This system still waits for integration with the main meego.com homepage.
Anybody can request the aggregation of their blog at meego.com under the following conditions:
If you fulfill your requirements above you can request the aggregation of your blog by adding it to the candidates list below:
Or you can start adding yourself to the list of candidates (please do not add other people's blogs to this list):
