Thanks for having given this pointer to Scott.

Still, I believe this is not an appropriate reply. First of all Debian
creates whatever is needed to create the best possible free operating
system. That includes a website (to attract users and new contributors,
without whom the OS will day of community deprivation) pretty much as it
includes a bug tracking system.

Does creating a website mean creating one "for contests"?  I personally
don't know, that's up to the debwww team to decide since we are still a
do-ocracy. So please let _them_ point volunteers to the most appropriate
development direction of the website.
