Website repository

Hello all,

While making the release the other day, one thing I found odd is that
the GHC website is still under Darcs version control on the website.
I'm not sure how many people are generally aware of this, however, but
you should just be able to darcs get

I'm wondering if we should move this somewhere else more public. I've
wanted someone to perhaps look into updating the website to something
a little more modern an easier to update for a while now.* Right now
it's just a bunch of SHTML pages stamped together, and it could
probably be a lot easier to maintain.

I don't necessarily propose we put it in the GHC repository (the LLVM
folks do this, but I think it would make actually *updating* the
website somewhat confusing), just somewhere more public. Does anyone
have any inputs? My first inclination is to just put it on, but perhaps the organization is a
better place (a bit more public).

Just wondering if anyone has thoughts.

* If someone out there is interested in doing this that would be
excellent, by the way, and I'm sure everyone would appreciate it :)
