Hi all again,

I've made the change[1] and new planet theme is in production. Let's see
how it works and later we can iterate over it to make it even better (maybe
we should put Foundation sponsor logos there?).

My sure next step here will be to purge all planet entries that are
pointing to non-existent blogs, or that have not published any post in
2017. I'll notify back when that clean-up is done.

All the best
