Xfce web site maintenance

Hello all,

At the beginning of this development cycle I had volunteered to take 
care of the maintenance of xfce.org. Unfortunately, I have not been able 
to give it as much time as it requires and things aren't going to 
improve now that I started hacking a bit on xfce4-session and 
xfce4-settings and real life stuff planned.

I would like to hand this task to someone else, I don't want to slow 
things down here. I know Nick has been working on a branch to improve 
the translation system but I really think core developers shouldn't take 
care of things like that, their free time can be better used on Xfce 
coding. It's a great way to get newcomers involved and there are a lot 
of Web developers out there, I'm pretty sure we can find one who uses 
Xfce and has some free time.

What do you guys think about this? I would particularly appreciate some 
input from Auke (as our sysadmin) and Nick (as our Web site guru ^^), 
but other inputs are of course welcome. If people agree with this idea, 
I'm ready to write an email to the Xfce users list and a post in Planet 
Xfce to try to find someone who would be interested, I could ask on 
#xfce too.

Sorry again for this, but I think this will be far better on the long run.
