Hi Michael,

to throw in another guess ...

I think there might be some slight misunderstanding between Charles and

As far as I understand, you talked about the content and the structure
of the website. I simply assume that website means (to you) all the
infrastructure elements that are visible to the user, even the planet,
the wiki, ... Of course, this will be managed by the community (and by
the way: the local communities already do this for the localized pages
of the Silverstripe site, e.g. [1]).

If I got Charles right, then he refers to the technical aspects of
server maintenance that run the website services. As far as I know, only
few administrators will have access to that servers, because otherwise
we need to expose the passwords/certificates. But that should be fine
for managing DNS and stuff like that.

And now my personal take: At the moment, having a young project like
LibO, I do see the need to organize / confirm decisions that have some
substantial impact. For example, the initial branding (visual design)
has been accepted (SC decision, discussion with the community) to focus
on the first releases. There will be changes, of course, but it just
makes life easier to have something rather conservative to start with,
and then continue to work on it on a broader basis - after having had a
deep breath.

As far as I understand, this is very similar to the website work ...
having Silverstripe as a first technical basis which might get replaced
if the requirements by the community are not met (any longer). Thus,
concerning your initial idea of revisiting / discussing the current
status with the whole website team / interested people: +1
