I believe Robert is suggesting that we have a strategy for the site -
it sounds like you're aware of such a strategy but it's not information
that has remained in the community knowledge.

site-dev doesn't have a lot happening with respect to www - 
however this conversation needs to go to site-dev. Could you start things 
by outlining the strategy below in an email there as a proposed way forward?

Mostly the content that's in your current email I suspect.

We also have /jcp, and probably /prc or /press at some point soon.

Robert's doing a great job of moving the site documentation - I think all 
we need is some passing down of knowledge on site-dev and things can move

I presume they do, in so far as they understand them. This is about 
committees creating a presence and Infra not being prepared for that 
(no barbs intended to infra, the information architecture of the site is 
rightly so not high on their list of priorities).
