Why not turn this blog into a a stimulating web space. One thing I feel we need to change as soon as possible is the default stylesheet and add some color to it. The folks over at Coudal are constantly playing with great header pictures.
It can't be that complicated for us to add a header image, and offer a proper default 3 collumn blog layout as an option. Photodb already has code that allows pictures to be displayed on the photodb frontpage, so all we need is an extension to blog. With the stupid blog calendar removed, and the max content b
Less is more.
Who's got the code to make it as simple as possible to add the picture and update, without digging into the templating system? (combination of blog and photobd maybe) with the max content bug fixed this would create a realy nice blog package.
Maybe it's an interesting pet project for a developer, whereby duplicate data entry options are eliminated. Makes a lot of sense to me, migrating images with text. There's realy no reason to have seperate packages for such simple tasks.
Next question, who's got the best picture. Why no start a competition?
Just a thought

Once bugs are fixed, the posting can be moved draft mode, so we still have documentation about what was changed and why.
If the categories would be used throughout the toolkit, the list can also be used a a documentation manual.
This blog also is an easy newbie answer to the question, what's OpenACS, as everything is available from one page.
