I have to agree with this. I just don't understand why the websites are 
developed so differently from source code. In fact, I just don't really 
understand how people get involved in improving the website when 
there's not even a public mailing list. I've complained about problems 
with the website before and offered to help fix them, in whatever other 
mailing list it's spilled over to. I don't have the time to 
consistently pump stuff out...but that's never a problem in source 
projects. I can contribute a patch, wander off, contribute another, and 
my contributions are still welcome. I'd really like to see all the 
websites in the same place, with a publically accessible repository, 
with commit emails, with public mailing lists. Developed like a source 
code project. Can Bricolage (or whatever CMS system you're leaning 
toward now) do that?
