We're not interested in aggregating developer blogs into a blog planet -
planet.ubuntu.com already serves a similar purpose.

Also, what "new features" does the website need and how would WP deliver
them more easily than with Drupal? WP is for blogs, Drupal is for websites.
Drupal, being the right tool for the job, is the standard CMS used across
*Ubuntu projects.
