FWIW, and I don't know if this has been made clear yet, but we didn't
choose baz to be different or to make things more difficult: we chose it
because it is a good tool and achieves what we want. We certainly didn't
plan for people who don't use Debian to contribute, nor did we think it
would be as difficult for people to use as has been implied. As a side
note, plenty of people have required tutoring with baz, but most of them
have picked it up fairly quickly.

What level of integration with the main website do we want, though? I'd
like to think that only people involved in DW have control over the site
content and AFAIK, from speaking with James Troup, it's not absolutely
necessary to integrate it with the main WML tree 'cause right now it
would be hosted on spohr, but we can get baz installed wherever it ends
up. (This is regarding women.debian.org, which will happen soonish once
a few things are worked out.)
