Hi chaps, I don't know who is in charge of Planet, but could Ben Galbraith and I have our blogs added?

Dion Almaer: http://almaer.com/blog/index.xml
Ben Galbraith: http://galbraiths.org/blog/feed/

Obviously, no rush at all.


Mozilla IT does not manage planet. Any bugs related to the membership and
content of planet should be directed to Websites :: planet.mozilla.org.

We only add one person/blog per bug, so Ben will need to file another bug. Also, we won't add Ben without his explicit permission, as per our policy, so this one bug wouldn't work for him anyway.

Also, please give a description of yourself and what you'll be blogging about
so that we can announce your joining to planet. You can see
http://blog.mozilla.com/planet/ for ideas.

I will ping Ben to do this himself. No problem.

How about this for the bio etc:

Dion Almaer is the co-founder of Ajaxian.com, the leading source of the Ajax community. For his day job, Dion co-leads a new group at Mozilla focusing on developer tools for the Web, which is something he has been passionate about doing for years, and is excited for the opportunity! Dion has been writing rich web applications from the beginning, and has been a columnist on various topics at ONJava, TheServerSide.com, openxource.com and of course his blog at almaer.com/blog.

He enjoys writing, and speaking at events such as JavaOne, Web 2.0 Expo, Future of Web Apps, Google I/O, JavaPolis, TheServerSide Symposium, and created The Ajax Experience. He also participates on the Java Community Process expert groups, and the open source community as a whole.

He enjoys the new Internet media that allows him to connect with the community, and thus created Audible Ajax, recently launched the Open Web Podcast with other industry gurus, and founded the Google Code Review show.

On his blog he discusses all things tech, but especially Ajax and Web issues.

I took the first paragraph for the bio to keep it easy to read.  You could of course write a post in a few minutes (once planet updates) if you want to give a little more detailed introduction.

Umm, I don't think that daily link dumps being syndicated to planet is such a good idea here. Planet's pretty full as it is, and while I have no problem with your personal blog posts, mozilla related or not, but the links, feel excessive.

Oh no! I am really sorry about that. I should have given you my tech subfeed that wouldn't have this or other items in it:

Would you mind changing the feed to:


That would solve the issue (and also wouldn't suck in random personal posts too).

Again, I apologize for the oversight.
Feed URL updated.
