I know DSA is uber-busy, so thank you for dropping us a reminder.

I do not remember exactly how the website was built and I can not enter to
rietz to check, but the contents are under subversion at
So I guess maybe move whatever used to regenerate the website and switch 
the DNS to a new machine is all that it needs. Is there any Debian machine 
where we could maybe the website? IIRC it did only require WML to generate 
the static content.

About the wiki, I think we could export the valuable content to the Debian
wiki and kill it. Given how little time there is for doint it, could you make
a dump of the content? I will look at it locally copying to wiki.d.o
what is not spam and worthwhile.
