Hi Panos,

I'm the author of the current website design and one of its maintainers. 
No need to say that your mockup rocks! :-)

When I wrote the current pygtk website I try use mod_python (or any 
other similar approach) to allow more dynamism to the website and I 
faced to gnome.org rules for websites and scripting. They are pretty 
simple: no scripting allowed :-)

That's why I wrote stp.py[1]. We may not have a lot of dynamism in pygtk 
but we try to make the website easy to maintain. Stp.py is used to 
pregenerate the website from a set of files.

Having said that I wish you lots of luck in the task of convincing 
gnome.org maintainers to bend their policies a little bit. Come one! we 
are on the XXI century!!

Keep up the good work
