Is there any practical reason why the repo for the website is not on hg with all the other repos (cpython/devguide/peps/etc.) except that no one ported it yet?

Anyone willing to assist with website maintenance (even occasional typo fixes) should email their ssh keys to the pydotorg at python.org mailing list (no need to join) and send an intro to the pydotorg-www mailing list (preferable to join).

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
-- the sqlite blessing
