Not too much in this direction I'd say. Freshmeat does a pretty good job at
that. I thought more of things like coverings of Loki and the like,

Nope. That's linuxgames.com's job. We're targeted at developers and partly
also at developers' bosses ("Why should we spend time on a port to this
Linux thing?").
I'd say if an article fits these categories it's ok:

* at least related to games
* primarily interesting to developers or developers' bosses
* about some open source thingy. i.e. a game port for a free OS, a game
  released with source, etcetc
  OR about *portable* development

Yes, but not too much I'd say. On the other hand I don't know a site
covering this in great detail, do we just might do it a bit more...
