I remember exactly that feeling!

svnpubsub[1] is a mechanism that svn supports which allows listeners to
subscribe to changes in an svn repository.  It stands for
svn-publish-subscribe.  CMS[2][3] stands for content management system and
Apache has built their own on top of svnpubsub.  One rationale for
reinventing this was the need for the site to be completely static.

The way that Apache CMS works is that you write documents in mark-down[4]
format which is basically just text with a few wiki-like conventions for
common textual effects such as headers and links.  These documents are
converted to HTML and embedded in page boilerplate using a templating
system similar to that used by Django's[5].

A nice starting point for a totally simple site might be the Drill web site
[6][7].  I say this because it is the only thing that Drill has put into
SVN and is also new and thus relatively simpler than a fully fleshed out
