How do Ubuntu.com and Kubuntu.org do it? I assume they don't add them

Additionally, would we consider unofficial community docs (ala the Ubuntu

Sounds cool, would this be review-based or should bloggers be able to add
their own guides?

Wow, I'd love a guide on setting up Compiz Fusion :P

Anyway, I suppose we could also require a license on those posts? There is
already a lot of Creative Commons material available, which could be used
right away. However, since adding a guide to Xubuntu.org will also increase
visibility of the blog of the original author I think it'd be fair enough to
require all featured guides to be CC-licensed so we can be sure we avoid any
legal problems.

I expect some discussion about the community docs idea - I certainly
