Great. Which one - PPlay or LGDC? (I'd say you concentrate on one of
them. I made bad experiences with people trying to do too many things

Accessing current websites:

The entire PPlay website is currently in CVS. If you're familiar with that
it would be easiest to get it that way (see the current homepage on how to
access the repository). If not, there's IIRC a snapshot on
ftp://sunsite.auc.dk/pub/os/linux/penguinplay/  (it's a bit older - but as
the website hasn't changed much recently that should be fine) If you don't
find it, just tell me.

With LGDC it's a bit more difficult. An old version of the site is at
It's one of the first versions and AFAIK all newer ones are lost :(
I don't know if the linuxgames ftp space is already set up (Ian?). If yes,
I can place you a tarball there.

Committing the new one:

For PPlay you'd have to talk to the sunsite staff about that. We decided to
move the homepage out of CVS (it's simply too unflexible for that), but I
don't know how it will be organized now. Most likely it will be similar to
the linuxgames setup where changing the homepage is simply a matter of
ftp'ing the new stuff to sunsite.
