Re: [pygame] Update PyGame website?

I saw creating a new website had been talked about, but not that someone had gone through the effort of working on one. I'll search  through the archives again here in a bit to look.

I'm not volunteering to program a CMS out of python, or even to learn a new CMS out of the ones I already know. But I like PyGame and think that there needs to be a better reference site out there for it. Hopefully no one will be insulted by my working on this one. 

I'd also like to see some updated releases. I know that the code repository has recent check-ins, but the pygame.org site shows the last release over three years ago. Even through there were Summer of Code projects, still no new releases.

If you look in the mailing list archives this just game up and was talked about at length.

Someone had already created a site to replace this one and it was very good but it was not adopted.  Everyone agreed that we thought it could use a change.

If we do build a new Pygame site, I vote for it to be written in python.

Hi, the PyGame website looks like it could use a little TLC. The platform it runs on seems susceptible to spam, but it would be really great if we could still collaborate and keep the website up to date.

I'm not sure who controls the pygame.org website or how they feel about an update. I played around creating an updated website using WordPress:

Of course, it needs a lot of styling and more content needs to be put into it. But before I did that I thought I'd ask how people would feel about an updated web site. 1.) Am I a bad person for trying, and I should leave it alone, 2.) Don't care, 3.) You'd like a log-in and help?
