in my opinion, it is not only a question of design, but of infrastructure. For
me, the combination of CVS and WML finally eroded all my motivation over the
years for keeping some life in the pages under /devel/debian-med. I would
welcome any change of VCS and language, even if it means losing the history or
rewriting the pages from scratch.
