-In order to work as a webmaster you need one of the following:
-<LI> Become a developer for one of the GNU packages managed by
- <a HREF="http://savannah.gnu.org/">Savannah</a>. This will
- allow you to edit the portion of the www.gnu.org web that
- is devoted to this GNU package, as shown in the
- <a HREF="www2savannah.html">www.gnu.org to Savannah projects map</a>.
-<LI> Become a member of the <a HREF="http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/www/">
- www</a> project in order to edit the whole tree.
-<LI> A shell account on gnudist.gnu.org,
- ask to <a HREF="mailto:address@hidden">address@hidden</a>.
-The whole www.gnu.org web site is stored under CVS on
-subversions.gnu.org. Most of the webmaster tasks do not require a
-shell account on gnudist.gnu.org and are a lot simpler to perform by
-checking out the pages on your local machine, modifying them and then
-committing the result. For an example of instructions on how to use
-CVS for this purpose, see the <a
-HREF="http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group_id=2">CVS instructions for
-the GNU mifluz package</a>.
+<p>In order to work as a webmaster for GNU you need to become a member
+of the <a href="http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/www/">www</a> project
+on <a href="http://savannah.gnu.org/">savannah.gnu.org</a>.
+<p>If you just want to edit the web pages for your particular package,
+not work as a general webmaster, then you need only become a developer
+for the corresponding project. If no savannah project exists, <a
+href="http://savannah.gnu.org/register/">register one</a>. This will
+allow you to edit the web pages directory for the project.
+<p>The whole www.gnu.org web site is stored in CVS on savannah.gnu.org.
+Most webmaster tasks are performed by checking out the CVS repository on
+your local machine, modifying them, and committing the result. <a
+href="http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=www">Instructions on how to use
+CVS</a> (you want the “Webpages repository”).
<P>When a commit to CVS is done, the live www.gnu.org web site is not
updated instantly. The cron job that does the updates currently runs at
the :10 and :40 of each hour.</P>
-In order to be granted edit permissions for a project you must first
-<a HREF="https://savannah.gnu.org/account/register.php">register yourself</a>
-on Savannah. This is a very simple step that anyone can do.
-A small number of tasks do require to logon gnudist.gnu.org and if you
-want to devote some time to them you'll need to ask for a shell account.
Instead of having a single group of users who have edit permissions
over the whole www.gnu.org CVS tree, a number of groups have been
created and only have edit permissions on a specific directory
