Great.. How about advocacy? the portal? etc.  Maybe all we have is code,
config files, and style sheets.

Still, whatever tools you pick, configure, or change make it public
(where copyright allows).

Simple things like idocs.php or the jobs.php code could be improved upon
(code always can be), yet if I have an idea that may only take an hour
to implement it's near to impossible to find the sources -- so I've not
bothered.

I'd be willing to bet there are a large number of people willing
(wanting) to do 10 minutes work here and there on the websites that
don't because it takes longer than that to find the materials.
