Website todo

Hi folks, hi Gerard,
I won't be able to work on this until monday and in order to get a 
timely release of the new website, I'm calling for the community's 
knowledge and support.

Attached you find the script, my wrapper script and the 
templates which together generate the file website.html. The wrapper is 
commented but you'll have to diff against the original ( to see how I mutilated it.

Anyway, I've documented everything I'd like to see fairly extensively at and the wrapper 
script itself has additional instructions. Just untar this in your local 
CVS of www (it expands to test/ and doesn't overwrite anything from 
CVS), look at the and run it after 
configuring it.

If anybody is able to help with improving the wrapper script and with 
creating the XSLT stylesheet I'd be very gratefull :)
Other (perhaps easier) solutions are of course welcome, allthough they 
should probably use basic UNIX tools (ie. bash, perl, awk, sed etc.). 
I'm sure there are also other CVS log parsers which could be used.

<friendly disclaimer>Please don't mail me suggestions on how to _do_ 
things, but instead mail me _patches, code snippets or scripts_. 
Unfortunately I'm reaching the limits of my scripting capabilities here 
and this being the holidays, I'm not interested in investigating a lot 
of new things right now. :) Thanks everybody!</friendly disclaimer>
