Just some minor details: the idea of the LWN submisisons is to make
them embed the HTML text rather then link to it, so to make it
easier on everyone it is best to follow their normal style. The
simplest then is to use the existing two submissions on my home page
and work from there. The first part such as the headers and perhaps
even the link to the updated list could be reused every time.

I would be happy if the LDP webmasters uploaded my two submissions
to the LDP pages. How about an announcements-page?
