Alright, so in my quest to move forward with my life, I'm going to be discarding certain projects that I really haven't been making a priority. Planet Larry is one of those.

I've always thought that the idea of a planet feed for a Linux distribution's user base is a good one, but it's just never become a priority for me and so it's suffered where it could have really taken off and done well. I'm hoping the next owner will be a better steward.

So, if you are sincerely interested in running it, shoot me an email at beandog at gentoo dot org and I'll let you know everything that's involved (hint: not much).
