I have an objection.

If the Phoenix site stays then someone needs to commit to updating it 
and bringing it in line with Avalon.  That's not going to happen!  The 
site contains information that is way out of date and basically the 
equivalent content is available over on loom.  No need to confuse people 
- if they want to see the docs - point them to Loom.  If anyone here 
feels compelled to preserve Phoenix html - then we can provide a zip.

Cheers, Stephen.
