regarding our website

On a more general note, I think it's time to move these web pages to  Doing this will mean the following:

  1.  ukug members don't have a web 
      presence any more.  This is the only downside that I can see.

  2.  Keeping the web pages updated can become a UK community driven 
      process.  Many people don't have an account on storm, but 
      submitting web page patches that are generally approved will be 
      grounds for getting an account and a commit bit - in pretty 
      much the same way that the main FreeBSD project itself works.

  3.  The server is ``secure''.  From a project perspective, we need 
      to ensure that the content of all domains under is 
      under the FreeBSD project's control.

  4.  A ukug-committers mailing list will be created and will be open 
      for subscription to the general public.  This will expose web 
      page updates to a ``healthy'' level of scrutiny - a good thing 

Assuming there aren't any violent objections, I'd suggest the 
following people as candidates for commit bits for the ukug web pages:

  Lee Johnston
  Hiten Pandya
  Josef Karthauser

I'm completely open to further suggestions on the subject.
