  "No matter what the issue, someone will try to turn it into a

I don't dislike Phil (and very much appreciate him and Fizz having
gotten meetings going again).  Judging from the rather crazed off-list
mail I get from time to time, the reverse is not true.  Oh well.

I _do_ get quite tired of having to correct his rather amazing
misrepresentations of my posts and doings.  Meanwhile, regardless of 
where Smaug collectively chooses to keep its Web pages, it would 
be nice if one or more person, preferably in/near Santa Cruz, would
participate in doing the updates that (because of Phil and Fizz's
accelerated meeting schedule) need to be done _every week_.

For years and years, you folks have left that _entirely_ up to me, and
I've been asking for broader participation during that entire time.
Isn't it about time someone else pitched in?

Moving to Drupal, a wiki, or HTTP over tin cans and string won't fix
that shortfall.
