of an oversight by me. Driph asked me to put the Site News section link just above technology, on the left, under "All Stories". Well I misunderstood, I thought he wanted it just like "All Stories" so I didn't make it list the stories there as well. Oops. Well its fixed now, and as soon as the cache clears (it refreshes the stories every 100 front page loads) it will show the latest sitenews stories.
Site News uses some new stuff that I put in a while back, so it won't post to the queue :) This is how it works: there are permissions to post/read comments and stories in each section (you can access them via the section editor). The permissions are allow, deny, or hide. All sections but sitenews are allow. If they are deny, Scoop says "You don't have permission to do <action> in this section". If they are hide, scoop pretends the section doesn't exist.
For posting stories, there are 2 extra permissions, "Auto-post to section" and "Auto-post to Front Page". Editors, Admins, and Superusers on Kuro5hin have Auto-post to Section privelages for the SiteNews section.
Site News was set up so that you don't have to read rusty's diary to see whats happening on kuro5hin anymore :) We'll post stories as we learn about whats happening, and they will be easy to find.
