I think the problem here is one of delegation and information.
I'm not even sure how the web-pages get updated at this point. Does anyone on this list know? I think it would be a great idea to move to github pages for the NumPy project at least.
The main scipy.org web page is the wiki. I'm not sure who apart from Enthought's IT staff has access to the machine running it.
This machine is slated to move to Amazon EC2 no later than end of March. I am doing it myself. The problem I ran into is one of accumulated crust (for lack of better expression). There are a zillion apache .conf files and virtual www sites hosted off that box, just deciding what it still live and what is not is a big task (I don't want to shut something off by accident).
I would personally be in favour of moving as much as we can to github or whatever other place you may think of. The current scipy.org machine bogs down randomly and apache needs a kick almost daily. Whenever I log into the box to restart it - the load is in the 17-20 range. The scipy.org machine is actually an OpenVZ container living on an underpowered (imho) linux box. Hence, I decided to get a large Amazon instance with plenty of memory. At the same time, this is the perfect opportunity for cleanup. If someone is willing to assist me, I have no problems getting more involved into moving things and reorganizing them.
