The scipy website is a problem. Currently it's a Plone site that is
theoretically supposed to be modifiable by the community. There are
two problems with it:
1) Most people have not absorbed the Zen of Plone yet, and so
modifications to the site don't happen as they could/should.
2) Editing the site becomes painfully slow as Plone starts to use up
lots of memory.
Result: scipy site is more static then it should be.
Any help in the web-site area would be very useful.
