We will have to create a redmine theme, a mediawiki theme, a drupal
theme and a custom theme (css) for lists.a.o.

Funny you mention that. I have actually been thinking of generating
static pages from either markdown or asciidoc. I have been looking at
nikola. If we do so, then we will need to also find a replacement
for forums and package browser, which currently is in drupal too.
Its not that I'm directly unhappy with drupal, which gets the job done
and does it pretty good. I just think the content we display is mostly
static so if we can get away with static pages, we would remove complexity.
I also like the idea of tracking the pages and news in git. I would be
happy if i could create new releases by writing something in
asciidoc/markdown (that could be sent unmodified to mailing list) and
just do git push to get it pusblished.
I love how suckless did their wiki.
That said, Carlo is doing the actual work here with drupal and those
who does the job are normally the ones that has the final say.
