Hi Bob,

I think we are moving toward a solution that will make it very easy to
contribute content. Regardless of if we use jekyll, flask, or something
else, right now contributing a new package just means adding a row to a tab
separated file, and adding a new blog entry means adding a new file to a
folder (with very minimal formatting). I think regardless of the solution
that we will choose, we are optimizing with this goal in mind, so you
should not worry.
