[ghns] Renewed collaboration among data sharing frameworks

we recently found out that a GHNS-style functionality for GNOME exists, thus
reinforcing the charter of the GHNS project at freedesktop.org.
It's the NewStuffManager:
and its author has subscribed to this list already - welcome Sebastian!
We're already quite far with the next generation KNewStuff2 implementation on
the KDE side, but interesting features can still be added. What's more
important to me personally is that the format of information on the wire (as
per our current GHNS spec) can be considered generic enough, or whether there
need to be changes.
KNewStuff2 doesn't have any relationship to D-BUS at the moment. If we want to
unify things on this level as well, it would also be on topic for this list.
So far I haven't seen a compelling argument for D-BUS in this area though.
P.S. Sorry for the delay Sebastian... I'm currently moving, painting walls and
quite unorganised until the end of the month or so.
