[maemo-developers] Quality check in Garage news

Lately we haven't been checking much the quality of the Garage news
before approving them to the Garage frontpage (and the maemo.org home as
well). The Social News filtering and the plan to have only the best news
hitting the home gave us this flexibility. And there were not much
garage news anyway, and the level was ok as an average.

This is changing, though, and we are seeing more Garage news with a
lower average quality. I'm talking about one sentence news, flagrant
misspellings, irc-like language, total lack of context and other things
that for some reason the average blog poster takes care of, even if

All this to say that we are going to be tougher now approving news even
for the Garage homepage, and this will filter them to not appear in
http://maemo.org/news either, so no favs, no maemo.org home (as soon as
the new home is in place). 

If you are unhappy about this you only need to put some more love in
your Garage news. We are not asking for Pulitzer articles either.  ;)
