You know, being unable to update the webpage has been a nasty recurring
problem.  The web site should be able to be the first place people can
check when something is amiss, and it's not.  I think we ought to
reconsider the priorities.  If having servers all over the world means
that people can't get current information, then we need to re-think
that.  I have never understood why this is the case, though; it would
seem easy enough to at least log on to the machine that hosts *the*
www.debian.org and vi a couple of files.
