FAQ page contains dead link for project submit
The FAQ entry for adding a project to Freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/faq/view/6/) contains a dead link. Instead of http://freshmeat.net/submit/ it should be http://freshmeat.net/add-project/
Another bug to fix :)
Explanation the name
The name is quite logic actually.
The part of the name that is confusing you must be the "weblog" part. Blogger has a pretty good explanation of the term weblog: "A weblog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically -- like a what's new page or a journal. The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly -- from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/person/idea, to diaries, photos, poetry, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction. Many weblogs are personal, "what's on my mind" type musings. Others are collaborative efforts based on a specific topic or area of mutual interest. Some weblogs are for play. Some are for work. Some are both."
