I'm starting to give more and more importance to this idea. Also we can
easily maintain such website through a git repository where contributors
can push the changes directly to the code preventing any issue with LDAP
and cms-ldap integration.

The combos static website (HTML/CSS etc), phpbb and the existing wiki /
mailing lists can make a clean and nice alternative to our original idea
of setting up a cms.
