Yep, I'm referring to the web pages. I have some CSS based pages at work using themes. The themes aren't really important to me, but since I doubt GIT is going to give us PHP I think we'll be better off without the PHP. >> As a start I've updated the download instructions to send users to GIT. > > OK. > >> I know you have the web stuff on GIT but if I make changes there they >> won't get to fvwm.org. > > That's OK -- because we can leave what's hosted on fvwm.org > as-is---and start to do something proper with fvwmorg.github.io -- > that's your play area.

We own the domain name, I'm not clear on the details but I think once we move the pages we can just make Fvwm.org be the git pages. >> Jason, let us know if/when you start pulling the web pages from GIT. > > See previous paragraph, I do not think this is the right approach at all. I don't see the difference. Right now Jason pulls from CVS to build the pages at fvwm.org. He said he's willing to pull from Git instead. So, the fvwm-web can be in CVS or GIT, it doesn't matter, we just need Jason to decide where he wants to pull from. >> I'm pretty good with HTML/CSS.

Okay, will get to that sometime. > Note that I'm getting married this weekend and will then be away on > honey moon for two weeks. Well, CONGRATULATIONS. That's just great. I was married in 1964.
