Yes, that would be awesome. And then we can migrate the content to the new
website when it's ready.

Fred: I think Fabien's request was mostly to re-read the logs for himself,
so he knows what to write
in 'ooc land weekly'. I don't think publishing the logs are necessary for
tha purpose.

Yeah a news submission system (requiring some moderating work to
edit/correct/improve news) would be great.

I'm not sure about just allowing other ooc-ers to post on the blog. It's not
really a system that would work, imho because it either gives too little or
too much control over the blog, both of which we don't want. Also, the
integration between the current blog and the main dokuwiki is rather sucky,
maybe we can have something better than that.

It's something to discuss with the website redesign team, I think in RoR
it's pretty easy to set up if we're clear on what we need, and I think we
agreed on IRC that the website should be more like a communication hub.
