And I have to say I very much like being able to edit the main site using the webui.  See https://blogs.apache.org/infra/entry/the_asf_cms

Joe Schaefer suggested on JIRA [1] to have the site contents in pure
Textile markup instead of Django templates as it is now. The benefit
of this is that it would be somewhat simpler to write contents (no
need for the template boilerplate).

Personally I'm somewhat inclined to leave it as it is now since it's
more flexible and the boilerplate is really not that bad.

The current contents are located at [2].
I will eventually change the ".twig" extension to something else since
we're not using Twig any more.

To illustrate the point further, some projects, like Esme [3], have
something similar, but with Markdown instead of Textile.

What do you think?

My understanding is if you want to use their system we can use their web UI to edit stuff and we don't really have to do anything.

We have to at least adapt view.pm and path.pm, like Joe Schaefer said.
By default they are configured to process only *.mdtext files. I'm
working on it.

Whatever you do, you can just use the area I already created which is documented in the Jira issue.

OK, I will use the /site/branches/cms/trunk/ folder.
