Indeed. And that wouldn't be scalable (mythbuntu, others *buntu?).
What I envision is similar to what can be found on france24.com: some
big main categories (in our case, the 3 target audiences are defining
them: "World", "LoCos", "Development"), and story tagging. If you
click on the "Kubuntu" tag, you get a view with all the latest Kubuntu
stories plus a link to a feed.
A list of popular tags could be shown on the front page.

Additionally, it would be nice (technically a little harder) to be
able for a tag view to switch from a non-managed mode (latest stories
goes automatically on top, all in rows, like
http://www.france24.com/en/category/tags-thematiques/gaza-assault) to
a managed mode (staff choose what stories to highlight, like in the
frontpage). Ideally I'll be able to manage rights so that some people
can have staff rights only on their tag view (e.g. amarok people can
manage their own page at news.ubuntu.com/amarok).

That's some ideas that would be great, but require some work.

(Please keep me CC'ed, I'm not suscribed!)

Cheers,
