You could...
Make a master database with each news item, a timestamp, and 
related-project name.  That database would only need to reside once on 
belgarath.  Whatever scripts you use to update the content could make a 
few queries to the database for news relative to each project and spit 
them out as files for inclusion, sorted in whichever way you prefer.  
So, for the Main/News page an all-inclusive list sorted by date would 
be easy...
