Do you know if Savannah supports this at the moment?

I have sone dome corrections and finetuning for the pages. Here are some
sections that require slightly more sophisticated systems than just
plain html files:

  I couldn't get in tools directory working. The following error
  message was printed with Python2.2. I printed the type of domfaqlist just
  before the error and it was xml.dom.minidom.DocumentType. Perhaps we
  should migrate to something like that generates html files
  from XML faq sources, because porting from SGML to XHTML may
  be quite difficult.

  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./", line 251, in ?
    File "./", line 241, in main
      faqlist, label_dict, title = extract(doc.childNodes[0])
    File "./", line 131, in extract
      faq_title = domfaqlist.getElementsByTagName('title')[0]
  AttributeError: DocumentType instance has no attribute

Release Notes:
  NEWS and DEVNEWS seem to be in a format that Docutils text processor
  package understands. There is script in Docutils distribution
  that can create html pages from NEWS and DEVNEWS.

I completely agree on not endorsing GIMP in that way. Maybe we should have a
"Drawn in Skencil" logo instead.

Perhaps directory name "" would be the best choice?
