Hi all,

For temporary docs, work in progress, and other interesting  
development updates, both blender.org cms and wiki fail to satisfy.

Check what developers post on others sites for example. Blogs offer a  
nice attractive layout, easy to add articles and pictures, and of  
course the option to post comments.

I think of setting up a blog (wordpress) code.blender.org, with  
following features;
- cool design (of course!)
- only serious posts, on topic, exclusively for people with svn-write  
account on Blender
- side bar with svn commit history
- navigation to tracker, wiki docs, and other stuff that's on  
projects.b.o now

The code.blender.org front end can then become a nice attractive &  
lively entry point for curious new devs as well.

Note: I don't want to force it on developers to use it. More of  
provide a platform, to ensure all the shattered information on  
personal websites at least is being collected. But, I would use it to  
document small new features, instead of doing it on blender.org cms.

Feedback welcome.
