This message is two weeks overdue.  It's hard to keep up sometimes.

On February 8th Jose had problems with commit to the www pages and
reported this through IRC.  They were not updating.  I investigated,
determined the hook was not set correctly, made a local edit hack to
set it from non-gnu to gnu.  The hack got automatically reverted by
sv_groups running by cron, as it should, but I didn't realize that it
would.  I gave it a firmer local edit hack setting the immutable bit
on the file so it would hold until we could really review and fix it
since there was no time to investigate it immediately.

Two weeks ago Bandali and I were able to converge and work through a
shared terminal and review how things were supposed to work.  Good
shared work sprint.  We figured out that the soc-projects summer of
code project was set to type 2 indicating a non-gnu project.
Therefore the automation would update the cvs hook in the loginfo file
to non-gnu, as it should, but we think it should be type 3 indicating
" portions".

Interestingly the history of the project showed that the type had
previously been set to 3, after previously being set to 1.  Therefore
I worry that this was set otherwise to solve some problem that is not
known to us at this time.

We set the type again to 3 for the project.  We verified that the
sv_groups automation then sets the cvs loginfo hook appropriately to
type gnu.  And therefore the web area on is updated.

Things should have been working correctly since the past two weeks.
But only now getting an information update about what we did out now.
