02:49 < habs> samgee: If you install <http://moinmo.in/MacroMarket/RSSReader>, I could set it up with <https://savannah.nongnu.org/news/atom.php?group=gnewsense>. Only problem is that we'd lose the old news, but I could just make a link labeled "Archive" to the old Main/News page.
03:04 < habs> Should be as simple as "sudo apt-get install python-feedparser && sudo wget 'http://moinmo.in/MacroMarket/RSSReader?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=RSSReader-2.0.py' -O /usr/share/moin/data/plugin/macro/RSSReader.py && sudo chmod a+r /usr/share/moin/data/plugin/macro/RSSReader.py"

The homepage of the website should show the latest news about gNewSense, but not the whole history as it does now. Some options:

1) Use a separate HTML page and include an RSS feed using Javascript.
2) Use a Moinmoin macro (e.g. RSSReader [1]) to include an RSS feed in the wiki.
3) Manually maintain a short news page in the wiki.

Options for the RSS feed are:

a) Savannah's News feature.
b) Identi.ca.
c) Our own Status.net instance.
d) A regular announcements blog.
e) Turning our News wiki page into an RSS feed [2].
