should be used as a source in en:wp :-) Interested parties should go

A particular dispute over a Wikinews reporter citing quotes from his own
interview has turned into a generalized debate about when Wikinews should be
an acceptable source.  See this RS/N

Jimbo has suggested that Wikinews create a best practices document.
BP-compliant articles would be verifiable and thus should be available to
Wikipedia editors as a reliable source.  See this Wikinews water cooler

I think that this is a great solution, which would answer the continual
objections that Wikinews faces on our project.  However, more editors should
weigh in.
