Create your own Planet

Major open source projects like GNOME, KDE, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and Apache all have something in common -- they all have Planet feed reader sites set up to aggregate developer blog feeds. The Planet software was developed to power Planet GNOME and Planet Debian, but now it's being used by dozens of open source projects. With just a few simple steps, you can set up a Planet aggregator to watch your favorite blogs or to help publicize your favorite project.

The software, which is under the same license as Python, is available on the Planet home page. We'll set up the 2.0 release here, but you can also download a nightly snapshot if you prefer to live on the edge. Planet requires Python 2.2 or later, and the python-bdb package. Obviously, you'll also need Apache or another Web server as well to serve up your Planet pages.
