Correct.  It is XML. It used to require that I check out the whole
directory, update the XML, run an ant script to generate the HTML and
then check in both the XML and HTML.  This is much simplified by the
CMS which does the template generation behind the scenes.

I'm not sure we need to maintain that "status file" once we graduate.
I think it is more of a podling tracking thing. So it might be
simplest if we just manually update it for now.  But longer term it
would be good to be able to generate a page for the project website
from the Roster.   The ODF Toolkit has an XSLTRunner component that
could be used for this.
