Yes, if it would appear under "Documentation"  I would expect
documentation and that is what it is.

Although I am still not sure if Frameworks is the right 
title.  But I you ask what would be better I can't tell.

I agree, an explicit marker is not good.  But if the wording
makes it clear it is external I am happy.  It is the unexpectedness
that I dislike.

Well, embedding is not what I had in mind.  But if the distinction
is clear between "Application News" and "GNUstep" news I have 
no problem at all with the external site.  
But still I feel somehow better if the application news would be
carried by the site itself.

Well, let me close by saying that we end up in a detailed 
discussion, which is good.  But I am not maintaining the
site.  So your opinion is more important the mine :-)
