That page is generated by: http://haskellnews.org/

But was added mostly as just something to put there. In the original
mockup I intended to put events on the home page:
http://chrisdone.com/comp.png I was thinking we can continue using the
Wiki page that you're used to editing for events and just accessing
that via the MediaWiki API (which someone happily contributed today).

Looks like someone might be contributing that.

That was also in my original plan: to have expanded full page versions
of each of the sections, but time is needed.
