(made it so that it explains it should be a file called .planet, rather than a .planet file (which implies foo.planet as a file))

Planet Howto

You can add yourself to the http://planet.fedoraproject.org blog aggregator!

This page explains what you need to do to get your blog feed added. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Planet has more details

Steps:

  1. As a fedora contributor you have to have a Fedora Account System account, have signed the cla and be a member of at least one other group in FAS.
  2. Next, you need to login to your fedorapeople.org account. Use your ssh key you uploaded into the FAS to do this.
    ssh accountname@fedorapeople.org
  3. You need to create a filed named .planet in your homedir. The content of the file should be like this:
    [http://www.livejournal.com/users/jspaleta/data/rss/]
    name = Jef "I use quotes in my name" Spaleta
    face = http://jspaleta.fedorapeople.org/jspaleta.png
    
    The first line in brackets is the url of your rss/rss2/atom feed. The next line is your name, obviously. The final line is optional and is the complete url to your hackergotchi/personal icon. There should be no spaces or tabs preceeding ANY of the above lines in your .planet file You can have more than one entry in your .planet file - just add another one in the same format.

Caution
The 1st line of the .planet file (the link) is the address to the feed and not the blog
(For Wordpress users, it is your blog name followed by "/feed/" eg <blogname>.wordpress.com/feed/)

That's all you have to do to get added to the planet. Feel free to email admin at fedoraproject.org for help.

If this is of any help, here is a small screencast illustrating the steps needed to create and upload your own .planet file: http://howto.nicubunu.ro/video/planet_fedora.ogg
