I'd like to strongly lobby that the website is built some other way - 
we are changing how we do Geronimo as we've gotten to the point where 
the current site is unbuildable, and thus this discourages people 
adding to the site, and drives them to the wiki which in some ways is 
like handing them chalk and sending them out to the sidewalk.

Having content on the site is really important, IMO - especially 
documentation that people can trust - so we want to make it as easy as 
possible for people to update.

I'm a real fan of simple velocity templates or even just htm.  We had a 
good system in Jakarta using Anakia, but DVSL or even XSL for the 
masochistic are fine by me.  The point is to make it look like an 
apache site, keep it simple to edit and update.

That's really one of the problems - coupling the site to the build.  
Nightly snapshots can still be built and posted independent of the site

I don't recall.
