I'm still in the Foundation meeting but thought I'd quickly get this
going if possible.

(Please see the Foundation meeting log for tonight (2001-09-05) for
background)

Problem
-------
Many news sites/sources, no single public face
Current 'public' face has non-jabber URL

Solution
--------
Get each source to offer an RSS feed.
Aggregate the feeds' items into one.
Use the one to provide the content for *the* public face site
for Jabber, news-wise

Steps
-----
1. Identify each site/source
2. Make sure each has an RSS feed
3. Write a simple aggregator 
4. Talk to the web gods (e.g. opie & temas) to get the
   aggregated content online in a nice way 

ok?
