Yeah, I think we need to have the release guidelines amended to also
update the website. It should be possible to send pull requests to
update the contents though. The main page seems to be contructed from

Blog posts always tend to land a little after the releases have been
made. This (partially) is intentional, so that the packagers get some
time to prepare the packages. I was planning to do the 3.5.5 notes
earlier this week... Maybe I'll get it done during the weekend.

Indeed, quite some feeds should get pruned to make the Planet more
interesting. Tagging posts with "Gluster" and only including those helps
a lot. This is something we ask authors to do. That said, anyone can
add/remove feeds through the GitHub "planet-gluster" project. The feeds
are here:

This is actually one thing we have been mentioning several times
already. Great to have this suggestion coming from you too! Lets try to
get something posted regulary. I think everyone should be able to help
with this, and add a few lines for an important/interesting topic.

I've started a little to capture things from this week, feel free to add

Thanks, lets see if we can make things even better!
