The website is pretty simple, hand-edited html where the <body> and
</body> tags are replaced with the standard header and footer templates.
I realize that the current frontpage is quite uninformative for existing
users and really should be swapped with what now is the news page. But
at the rate new releases come out, the news page is pretty boring too :)
So really, we'd not only have to switch the site around, but also add
'content' between releases (or just release more often).

For one I tend to use viewcvs a lot, but to get there is pretty counter
intuitive. We could probably list a bunch of external links to Coda, 
filesystem or synchronization/mirroring related sites.

Mostly linuxdoc-sgml, although I believe the Coda Administrators and
Users manual is already DocBook. It is in the 'doc' CVS subtree
  cvs -d'' co doc
