Sure, as is policy, I'll maintain the web site much the way Alexander
maintains the Wine tree. Check out the website from CVS using the
"lostwages" (I think I will keep it that name) module. Make your changes
to the local files, then do a "cvs diff > patch.diff", then email the
patch to: web-admin at, with a subject of PATCH.

I'm ignoring them. :-) Some of them I have implemented, others I am
keeping my way for now.

Sure. By the way, thanks goes to Frank's World for the how to. I still
think it needs more fleshing out. A patch is welcome for that page.

Send patches.

I agree here. Until I update bugzilla to the web site theme (E.T.A.
Never), a placeholder page will go in. I'll possibly copy some bug entry
help to that page as well.
