yes, we would need a real good QS to ensure nothing is broken
afterwards. Diff'ing the output of both systems will show any serious
problems if happen.

I think changing the generating system is really out of scope, at least
I see no real reason to change to something shiny new which will require
a lot of individual adjustments, which will take a lot of time and by
this a lot of resources (we don't have), to archive the same output in
the end.

What I wanted to say was simple that we appreciate any help to improve
the build process. Steve has made a lot of things in the near past that
have speed up the build time of the Debian website massively.
If possible you should think about traveling to a MiniDebConf where we
could meet us. It's really easier and effective to talk about such
topics face to face. But I'm not the right person to talk about Perl and
the internals of it.

O.k., we will see whats possible and what will happen.
