-  The choice of tool used to generate the web site is left to 
-  the podling. If you already have a tool that you are comfortable

-            </p>
-            <p>
-  Regardless of which tool you use, the web site should be maintained
-  in the svn repository, and include the site generation tool as a binary
-  file. This simplifies the process of site generation and enables changes
-  to the site to be made by any committer. The generated site should also
-  be checked into svn. This allows the generated site to be relocated
-  to any part of the Apache site after incubation is complete.
-            </p>
-            <p>
-  Since the site is independent of the code, it should exist high in
-  the svn repository, e.g. parallel to the trunk of the source tree.

-(old way) or <code>/www/podlingname.apache.org</code> (new way) on

-People using Maven, Forrest, or any other tool still have

+                <p>
+                    The choice of tool used to generate the web site is left to
+                    the podling. If you already have a tool that you are comfortable
+                    with, you can continue to use it. If you do not, consider using
+                    the <a href="http://www.apache.org/dev/cmsref.html">Apache CMS</a>.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    Regardless of which tool you use, the web site should be maintained
+                    in the svn repository, and include the site generation tool as a binary
+                    file. This simplifies the process of site generation and enables changes
+                    to the site to be made by any committer. The generated site should also
+                    be checked into svn. This allows the generated site to be relocated
+                    to any part of the Apache site after incubation is complete.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    Since the site is independent of the code, it should exist high in
+                    the svn repository, e.g. parallel to the trunk of the source tree.

+                    <br/>
+                    The website is published by checking out the content from SVN into
+                    the directory
+                    <code>/www/incubator.apache.org/content/podlingname</code>
+                    (old way) or <code>/www/podlingname.apache.org</code> (new way) on
+                    <code>people.apache.org</code>. The particular SVN module used to
+                    store the website is a matter for the podling but it should be in SVN.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    People using Maven, Forrest, or any other tool still have
+                    to address the SVN publishing requirement that the
+                    infrastructure team has laid out. If that is done, then we
+                    just run "svn update" in that directory to load the site from
+                    SVN.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    The Mentors MUST add the information to the podling
+                    incubation status file, to describe the SVN module and the
+                    directory which holds the published site.

-point of view of the PMC and from the point of view of members of a
-project under incubation, a set of policies and procedures are
-described below that identify roles and responsibilities of
-participants throughout the incubation lifecycle.
-</p>
-        <p>A project going through the Incubator will therefore be required to
-regularly report to the Incubator PMC. This will help the PMC in its
-role of reviewing the status of a project under incubation.
-</p>
-        <p>Finally, the Incubator PMC is the ASF body with the greatest level of
-expertise and experience in the Incubation process. They provide a
-store of knowledge that can be called on by the Mentor or a Podling
-during (or even after) the incubation process. In cases where an
-Incubation is particularly large, or where the Incubator PMC
-otherwise feels the Mentor needs additional assistance, the Incubator
-PMC may choose to provide an experienced Mentor to assist the main
-Mentor in discharging their duty.
-</p>
-        <p>Individuals may be nominated to join the IPMC after a vote which
-passes with more than 3/4 of those voting.  Additionally, any Member of the
-Apache Software Foundation may join the IPMC by request.

-            The Sponsor [<a href="&root-path;/incubation/Incubator_Policy.html#Sponsor">definition</a>]
-            is the entity within the ASF that makes the determination 
-            that a candidate would make a worthy addition to the ASF, and agrees
-            to take on the candidate in question (or in the case of the Incubator
-            PMC, assist it in finding a home) should it complete the incubation
-            process.
-        </p>
-        <p>A Sponsor will be one of:</p>
-        <ul>
-          <li>
-              A Top Level Project within the ASF. In this case, the project in
-              question has agreed that the candidate is a good fit for their
-              project, and will take on the candidate as a sub-project upon
-              successful completion of Incubation.
-          </li>
-          <li>
-              The Incubator PMC. In this case, the Incubator PMC agrees that the
-              project in question will make a good addition to the ASF, but there
-              is no clear "owner" of the candidate should it successfully complete
-              incubation. An incubation exit requirement for such candidates will
-              be the identification (and successfuly lobbying) of an "owner" entity
-              - either the <a href='#board'>Board</a> (and the candidate will be a TLP) or another
-              project. In most cases, the Incubator PMC is the correct Sponsor (Candidates should discuss this
-              with their Champion).
-          </li>
-        </ul>
-        <p>
-            Note that a Sponsor is more than just a final resting place for a
-            candidate that successfully completes incubation. The Sponsor, by
-            taking on a candidate, is indicating that they believe the candidate
-            will make a worthy addition to the ASF, and takes responsibility for
-            assisting the podling through the Incubation process. The Sponsor is
-            therefore expected to be actively involved in the incubation process
-            and assist where necessary, giving the podling the best possible
-            chance of success. In addition, an entity that is a Top Level Project
-            should be involved in the Candidate's incubation in order to educate
-            the Candidate about practices that are specific to that TLP and about
-            other relevant projects within the TLP.
-        </p>
-        <p>
-            However, while the Sponsor is expected to be actively involved, it is
-            formally representated by the Mentors. The Mentors are the individuals
-            accountable to the Incubator PMC for ensuring the incubation process
-            is correctly followed. In cases where the Mentors are not fulfilling
-            their responsibilities, the Sponsor (in particular its Chair) will be
-            expected to remedy the situation.

+                    The Sponsor is the entity within the ASF that makes the determination
+                    that a candidate would make a worthy addition to the ASF, and agrees
+                    to take on the candidate in question (or in the case of the Incubator
+                    PMC, assist it in finding a home) should it complete the incubation
+                    process.
+                </p>
+                <p>A Sponsor will be one of:</p>

+                    <li>
+                        A Top Level Project within the ASF. In this case, the project in
+                        question has agreed that the candidate is a good fit for their
+                        project, and will take on the candidate as a sub-project upon
+                        successful completion of Incubation.
+                    </li>
+                    <li>
+                        The Incubator PMC. In this case, the Incubator PMC agrees that the
+                        project in question will make a good addition to the ASF, but there
+                        is no clear "owner" of the candidate should it successfully complete
+                        incubation. An incubation exit requirement for such candidates will
+                        be the identification (and successfuly lobbying) of an "owner" entity
+                        - either the <a href='#board'>Board</a> (and the candidate will be a TLP) or another
+                        project. In most cases, the Incubator PMC is the correct Sponsor (Candidates should discuss this
+                        with their Champion).
+                    </li>
+                </ul>
+                <p>
+                    Note that a Sponsor is more than just a final resting place for a
+                    candidate that successfully completes incubation. The Sponsor, by
+                    taking on a candidate, is indicating that they believe the candidate
+                    will make a worthy addition to the ASF, and takes responsibility for
+                    assisting the podling through the Incubation process. The Sponsor is
+                    therefore expected to be actively involved in the incubation process
+                    and assist where necessary, giving the podling the best possible
+                    chance of success. In addition, an entity that is a Top Level Project
+                    should be involved in the Candidate's incubation in order to educate
+                    the Candidate about practices that are specific to that TLP and about
+                    other relevant projects within the TLP.
+                </p>
+                <p>
+                    However, while the Sponsor is expected to be actively involved, it is
+                    formally representated by the Mentors. The Mentors are the individuals
+                    accountable to the Incubator PMC for ensuring the incubation process
+                    is correctly followed. In cases where the Mentors are not fulfilling
+                    their responsibilities, the Sponsor (in particular its Chair) will be
+                    expected to remedy the situation.
