I think an overhaul of the entire website is beyond the scope of a
Summer of Code project, but then again I don't know what the scope of
a Summer of Code project is.  :)

I'm also not sure what the scope of moving to a different CMS would be:
the current website has 4349 pages written in the WML, but I don't
know how many of these would need to be preserved and how much effort
doing so would entail.  I'm also not sure what benefits migrating to
another platform would bring.
