I am just not the webmaster type even when I did that long, long, ago.
In any case I just thought I'd share some feedback:

I've been using the bookmarklet and for simple changes it's OK
but I haven't really tried some more advanced issues like uploading
images, creating or deleting pages (the GPL3, for example, can be
linked to the FSF instead of carrying it in the website) simply because
I am unsure if such changes can be undone from the bookmarklet
or one has to go to SVN to revert a change.

Another thing is that it would be nice to be able to work collectively
on a branch and switch to it at a later time, for example for the release.
