Re: Complete Website Revamp

Hello folks,

I recommend you tie your conversation to this post (https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2020/12/msg00057.html) from the web team, to make sure your ideas are heard and align with the ongoing website renovation.

wml is an SSG:


I'd recommend switching from it to something faster and less quirky (despite
being a wml upstream maintainer):


There is an undergoing hugo branch.

Regarding react.js: I'd prefer to avoid if it means https://www.debian.org/
will require whitelisting client-side scripting:
