you will need to go through the sames steps i did.

1) figure out who runs the computer and what resources they have to
2) determine the information that the user needs and collect it.
3) write a mechanism to build the site that even the most inept beginner
   can make it at home (after some additional apache configuration that
   used to be documented there).

the site that i eh, collected, fullfilled all of these things and more.
if you cannot build software on windows that is not gimp dot org
problem, btw ....  that site has disappeared.

the current site can be reverted to fullfill the many goals or can
evolve (once again) to fullfill this, but the current site is a travesty
and a pathetic "head up someones ass" farce of the site that is there
and should not remain even a part of the gimp.org sites.  perhaps there
is room for it at gamers.org?  it seems like it would make a beautiful
addition to whatever they have there.

until then, the same steps i already covered need to be completed again,
one way or another.

or you can go by what dave neary says and wait for rapha?l to move it to
its new site.  oh, he will probably need to talk to the people who run
the computer about what they need, expect and the resources they have to
allocate.  once again, the same steps i already covered that can be
accomplished with a simple reversion to the site that is in cvs now.
back to may would be fine or even july.

my question is this.  if i had written better email, would i be allowed
to destroy things?

i was thinking about doing a number on the gimp cvs source like rapha?l
did to the site i designed.  would dave neary say that i run gimp now,
if i were to go independent and destroy the collective work as he did to
the web project?

probably if i write very sane email (spell check and all), i would be
allowed to do what i wish?

thanks for asking,
