Yeah, Jeff will need to weigh in on this. He doesn't have to do
anything, just have the account available in case...

Jeff will need to weigh in on this also. Does he wish to maintain
an official Lout page on his site (the Lout link on his page is
dead anyway...) or let the community set up something simple on SF?

Also, there are things like supported editors, examples available
online, links to mailing list and official site, etc., generally
not to lose the information already accumulated.

I'm partial to a single basic HTML page. However, if we allow for
possible contributed material, scripts, etc. it will have more
than one element.

I was thinking of admins maintaining the pages with SVN and cron,
but then again, perhaps we can use a wiki after all, and
ruthlessly limit the capabilities of the wiki -- updates
restricted, bare HTML no frills. A web-based interface like a wiki
is easier to use than CVS/SVN/scp, if we are to assume that more
than one person will be editing it.

What's the most bare-bone wiki solution that allows for easy
editing by 2 or more persons? Lout is mature; we won't expect
heightened activity all year round, so what's most convenient for
us to edit?

I agree that this would be the best long term solution in the case
where the Lout community is handling it.
