After Lukas asked me for the current Planet sources, I realized that I didn't really maintain the sources in the mentioned SVN repository anymore (for various reasons). So I decided to finally move them to GitHub. It makes much more sense there, since the most decent thing to do if you want to set up your own planet is to fork it and git (plus GitHub) makes that painlessly easy. Nevertheless I'm of course still interested in patches :)
Thanks to the great guys from endoxon, blogug can now provide a high resolution map of the latest blog posts in the Swiss blogosphere.
At least that's a conclusion one could draw when looking at the blogug stats:
On Friday evening, Marcel from jobblog.ch made a little post to check, who's stealing his content. I actually saw that post on Planet Blogug and didn't think much of it, but when a few hours later local.ch appeared as "content-stealer" I was quite surprised...
It's done. blog.ch is sold. To centralway, an investment holding I never heard before (but hey, I don't know many investment companies anyway...)
Inspired by a post on Bertrand's blog and especially a comment by Stephanie there, I implemented a language detection feature of blog entries on Planet Switzerland. If you're only interested in eg. German posts, you can search for lang:de (or French or Italian or English) from now on.
After my suggestion to Patrice that having a comment feed field on each blog on list.blogug.ch, he (as usual) promptly added it. I have some plans using those feeds on the Planet, more about that later :)
Now it's your turn, go and add your comment feed there. And as most of the most use blogging tools in Switzerland do support comment feeds, that should get us a nice list (not sure if Blogger.com and the Sixapart people do support comment feeds out of the box, at least WordPress, Kaywa, Serendipity and Flux CMS do, didn't check the others)
