Emacs News gets aggregated into Planet Emacslife, so it's probably okay
not to link to that separately. It's cureently a category of my personal
blog and I haven't had the time to split it out. I have other blog posts
about nonfree programs or systems in my archive, but only my Emacs posts
are included in Planet Emacslife. I also post Emacs News updates to the
emacs-tangents mailing list, which might be a freer option.

Planet Emacslife aggregates a bunch of RSS feeds. In general, I've tried
to limit it to people's Emacs categories, but sometimes people don't
offer category-specific feeds. In that situation, I include their full
feed, so there are also posts unrelated to Emacs. The aggregator lets me
blacklist specific posts, I think. I haven't tried that ability yet, and
I'm not sure I can take on the responsibility of saying it'll never have
a post promoting nonfree programs outside Emacs integrations. Are you
okay with the fact that the aggregator itself doesn't promote nonfree
programs or systems, even if it occasionally includes blog posts from
people writing about stuff they"re interested in?

Stefan, thanks for pinging me and thinkkng of this!
