I would like to assist on the website. Although I have not made any code contributions to Numpy/SciPy (yet), I do follow the mailing lists and try to keep up to date on the scientific python scene. However, I need to hold my breath until the end of my wind tunnel test campaign mid February.
And I do like the sound of the gihub workflow as currently done by the ipython team.

I like this idea, and to get the ball rolling I've stripped out the www directory of the scipy.org-new repo into it's own repository using git filter-branch (posted here: https://github.com/scottza/scipy_website) and created https://github.com/scottza/scottza.github.com. This puts a copy of the new scipy website at http://scottza.github.com as a proof of concept.
Since there seems to be some agreement on rehosting numpy's website on github, I'd be happy to do as much of the legwork as I can in getting the numpy.scipy.org content hosted at numpy.github.com. I don't have permission to create new repos for the Numpy organization, so someone would have to create an empty https://github.com/numpy/numpy.github.com and give me push permission on that repo.
Does it need to be a new repo, or would permissions on https://github.com/numpy/numpy.scipy.org work as well?
It would be great to see scipy go the same way and make updating the site easier. I know that David Warde-Farley, Pauli and others put in a lot of work scraping content off the wiki to produce the new website, it would be fantastic to see the fruits of that effort.
Yes it would. I've taken Fernando's suggestion and created a github team "Scipy web team" and given you push-pull permissions for https://github.com/scipy/scipy.org-new Scott.
David, once you make a few pull requests please ping us, and we can give you permissions too.
Issues with scipy "Trac, the doc editor, and the conference.scipy.org and docs.scipy.org" as mentioned by Pauli. There is also the cookbook on the wiki to consider (perhaps http://scipy-central.org/ could play a role there).
