I don't mind maintaining the site and creating the visual, I do enjoy the
task :)  [current logo in Xarchon site was drawn by me, yes, blame me for
that uncroped white strip at the corner, the page really needs a redesign]

I am involved in various other projects, so I'll probably be unable to
update the site more than once a week. I don't believe you guys live for
XArchon coding, so that should not be a problem, and after the redesign is
done, other people than me can surely add news items, version updates
without trouble (having scripts for that is part of site design :).

For reference on the kind of thing you could get:

Hmmm...I don't think there's demand for it. Instructions on how to get a
cvs snapshot from anonymous CVS on the web page should be enough (unless
you're planning porting XArchon to Windows or MacOS, where users can be
quite clueless (and GNU-less) and have trouble getting it from cvs.
