I'll point out I have a separate thread to revamp the entire website.  I'd
rather not invest in the small patches to make the current site a little
bit better - there's problems down to the technology in use that make it
not a maintainable option much further.  I was tied up with other needs,
plus waiting for more info on what Sam was trying to do, it seems like he
stopped at putting users in ldap, so I think we can pick up the rest from
there.  I have a prototype that uses styles and layout from the top level
domain plus asciidoc and markdown powering the individual pages.  Much more
maintainable, easier to work with, without having to deal with the HTML.
