Yes, it can have been you :)

I've just sent the URL. 'Bit of asking' being 'please please please I 
want to be part of planet'? So please please please :)

We've used drupal for what- more than two years now? I still feel 
uncomfortable with it. I know it's not a real problem since I'm not 
doing much content work these days, but the terminology it uses 
throughout is obscure for me. "Moderate comments"? The whole publishing 
system I can't get the hang of.

I'm so used to either blog CMS's (dotclear, wordpress) or 
content-oriented CMS's (spip) that drupal really looks like what I'm 
always trying to avoid when advising people: a CMS that shows it's done 
by tech people.

Anyway, I'm sure it's just me since I've never seen any other remark 
like that in two years on the lists.

Gah? Wouldn't we need new drupal templates in order to present the 
aggregation the way planet does?

And (reiterating a question that was overlooked in the flow of other 
emails) wasn't one of Isaac's designs incorporating feeds into the main 
weo page and how is this idea going to be incorporated into the proposed 
new designs?

(I really wish I had more time to contribute, I hate throwing ideas in 
the air and being forced to neglect the implementation)
