I am willing to take that task up.

That said, let me clarify my current position.
1. Yes, documentation should be kept in git.
   My initial mistake was caused by that I let the revision table at
the start of User Guide to colour my opinion; simply seeing that,
according to the revision table on first page, last update happened
more than ten years ago, made me thought that the website version of
it has never been actually touched up.
2. I believe that using CMS, in long term, we can save time to those
central to the project - that is, those who usually have the least of
it to do things like adding new bits to the website.
3. While Plone is my personal favourite, I am willing to argue that; I
do not presume that this piece of software is best for all
4. I am willing to put considerable time into making the website not
only "pretty" but also quite usable.


P.S. Yes, the newsletter should have been one page with links. I'll rework it.
