+1 to all this.

Note that since Monica's blog is Wordpress-based, it should be easy to have digress.it, according to what they say: http://digress.it/help/#how-do-i-download-digressit
Monica, do you think someone at UKOLN could fetch the code and put it in the plug-in folder?

If not, then we'd have to use some tricks:
- to reflect the structure we might have to post the final sections first? That might be the best way not to lose the sequence, at least.
- for enabling posting comments on the entire document, we should have one specific "report" post, with the title. And put it in front (ie., posting it last?)

Cheers,

Antoine
