As it relates to open-source, a planet is a feed aggregator application that collects posts from the blogs of members of a free or open-source community, displaying them on a single page.

Written in Python, Planet was released as free software under the Python License. There are several successors to Planet, such as Venus, two separate projects each named Pluto, and another known as Moonmoon.

Websites that aggregate posts from different blogs using Planet or one of its successors are themselves known as planets. Such sites are generally associated with free and open-source software and used to display posts from developers involved in a particular software or project.

Websites representing the application known as Planet, or that of its successors, are appropriate topics for this category, as are any of the generated planets for free and open-source projects.
