Indeed, I am starting to wonder if it would be possible to use redirections or
aliases to allow a step-by-step transition… Instead of looking for volunteers
to migrate the whole website, perhaps we should focus on giving flexibility for
people who care about a particular branch to use a different system, provided
that it follows some appearance and translation standards.

Perhaps this discussion should better be continued on debian-www@l.d.o…
