i'd be happy to do so but i've found a few wrinkles so i'd like to sort 
them out first rather than risk making a mistake.

(you probably know these two points already but just in case you don't...)

1. i believe (hopefully people will correct me if i'm wrong) that new 
committers are no longer being given logon's to most 
people who have been committers for a while still have their's but i 
believe that the ASF would like to reduce the number of people with logons 
to (which is one good reason to think about 
automatically updating the web site.) if you do want to try to get a logon 
then i think that general is the right place to ask.

2. you might find 
useful in understanding the web page update system.

from looking at the directories it appears to me that latka's web pages 
are not (in the standard place) in cvs but instead are copied into 
position by hand.

i'm willing to copy your web pages into position but i won't be able test 
them first. so if this is what you want me to do i'll probably need to 
check with you exactly what's needed and which of the existing pages you 
want to keep.

on the other hand, most other projects use the jakarta-commons/docs folder 
for their web pages. they are committed into cvs and then the live web 
site is updated from there. maybe latka would like to begin using this 
system. if you want to go down that route, then i'd be happy to help with 
that too.

the choice is yours...
