I would like to
- share the Web site management with more people
- get the migration done to a different CMS, i.e. Wordpress (Martin
had set up a test instance long time back). Yes, CMS since I don't
expect that anyone will maintain a Sphinx/bootstrap/whatever based
site over the years... [1]


[1] I am maintaining the GRASS GIS Web site since 1998 :-) and my
impression remains that the low barrier solutions work best (next:
Wordpress) nonetheless any more modern approaches will just not work
out over time.
