I tend to agree with you Deven. Do you have any ideas for how to go
about keeping Subversion's web site a little more dynamic? Do you want
try making some changes to it? If you are interested, you can either
send some patches to the list, or to me personally if people want to
keep significant web related patches of the list. On another note, I
think it would be nice to fix the site so that it is compliant with an
HTML spec. Taking a look at
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://subversion.tigris.org shows
that we have a ways to go. I was going to do a bit, but it is sort of a
pain, since I don't have the entire tigris framework, so I would have to
check in a zillion little patches to test and get things working.

Anyone have a better way to go about it?
