I'd be fine hosting it on the repoman server, but to work, it would 
definitely need a big link off the front page and general buy-in 
from the developers and community.

I'd also love some advice from those who have set up a CMS in this 
fashion before.. it's a bit of a different requirement to accept 
posts from anyone and allow moderation/editing workflow than your 
typical blog.
