The process of publishing is the same for both categories. The process
of reviewing may possibly be less strict for 'external' packages (?),
but I think checking licenses is important, and it should be possible
to generate the release from the OF repository.

You're right, let's do it this way.

That's what I meant.

The only reason has been not to clutter the repository with too many
changesets. I daresay it wouldn't do much harm, though, to commit any
news.html change. If you like, we can try to keep news.html in sync.
