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.
