Can we host this on our own server? Do we want to?

Hi Squeak friends!

about ten years ago I set up the blog aggregators http://planet.squeak.org,
http://planetes.squeak.org, http://planetjp.squeak.org,
http://planetcroquet.squeak.org, and http://planetmisc.squeak.org, to give
more visibility to Squeak-related blogging and to make it easier to follow
with a feed reader.

Blogging activity on the planet has dwindled (for ages it has seemed a
small planet, ruled by the immortal god-emperor Torsten Bergmann - HAIL!).
Of course there might be many new blogs to add, eg Pharo-related; I haven't
been seeking them out.

I still think a site like this concentrating blog feeds in one place is a
good idea.

To improve focus elsewhere, I'm offering this project (and others) for
adoption. It's very low maintenance. You need a VPS or server where you can
run cron jobs and the Planet Venus python software. You could also spend
time adding new feeds, or merging such changes from others. The source
files are in a darcs repo, which I can convert to git if you prefer.

Please reply if you're able to take this on. I'll step down as maintainer
at the end of this month, about two weeks from now.

Best wishes,
