Where did you hear this?

How does all that documentation we have had for years at
http://www.debian.org/devel/website/ in any way say or imply that
"helping out with the website is a herculean task that no mere mortal
should attempt"? How do all those relatively clueless translators who
simply know two languages manage to get things done? Are they all immortals?

It's not trivially easy to do, therefore it sucks?

What's next in this fine line of reasoning, I wonder? It doesn't have
a MS Windows GUI that my granny thinks is trivial, therefore it sucks?

Can you please realize that this kind of unsubstantiated blather actually
hurts the feelings of the people who are making a good-faith effort to
keep the web site working?

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
