I can't volunteer the time to do this, but I can say that process is really
quite simple.  We switched with Drill and the results are not bad at all.

All you need to do is translate the pages to mark-down text, copy and adapt
a few headers and stick the resulting files into a standardized directory
structure in SVN.  From there, you notify infra that you have a CMS set of
pages ready to go and shortly later, you have  CMS supported site.

To edit pages after that, you can either edit the markdown version in SVN,
check it back in and trigger a CMS rebuild.  It is much easier to use a
javascript bookmark provided for the purpose which triggers an in-browser
edit of the page.  You can then stage, review and finally publish the page
from your browser.

The entire process is (somewhat voluminously) documented at

It really is relatively painless.
