thanks Lukasz for putting up the domain! It think its a great to have 
such a page.
I have a few ideas for the strutsathon page. I believe we should look at 
it as a place
where we connect to the community. We could:

- give information how to organize a local Strutsathon
- provide a calendar for Strutsathons AND Struts-related talks 
(Christoph Nenning promised to give a talk in Munich early next year)
- link to community blogs, blog posts and so on
- maybe write a blog on our own, with summaries of latest discussions, 
recent changes, how-tos… whatever. For example, some information on 
the new struts-angular archetype would fit perfectly there. Also we 
could allow our users to write own Struts related blogs, when they have 
signed an ICLA

I think it would be good to use a Git repository for it. In addition I 
would like to use Jekyll for the static generator. Jekyll is great with 
templates and supports blogging. I also think its good for the 
approaching documentation efforts. We can learn about Jekyll and see if 
it would be good for our docs or not.

Hosting: as Jekyll can create static pages, we can use it in conjunction 
with the Apache CMS somehow. There is need to find out if the CMS can 
build Jekyll on its own or not. However it will be very interesting to 
find out.

Currently it is hosted by GitHub if I see it correctly. If we use 
Strutsathon as official Struts-resource, I believe we should host it on 
ASF hardware. Or do you think different?


PS: Yes, I am going to help with this
