Thanks, this is very helpful. I am currently thinking that we should fold website/Kenai content
towards a combination of mdtext, html, javascript and css into the current podling website.

Good point. Let's separate the efforts. It looks like the website is a larger effort.

Raphael attached some directory listings for the foreign language sites. These look like they
are made to parallel the main website.

Back to the website.

(1) An initial test could focus on the current main page in English followed by versions in
several languages. This will need to script the conversion of existing webcontent from Kenai
into format for the Apache CMS.

(2) A second focus would be on the Kenai content for one of the product development areas.
This script may be substantially different.

(3) A third focus would be building the documentation area. If a wiki is preferred then we
should create a website page that provides good links.

(4) A fourth focus for the website migration is how to best integrate the project's choices
for Bugzilla or JIRA, user forums, and mailing lists.

(5) MediaWiki to Apache Wiki can be a separate effort as described in another part of this
