The other day, while discussing on #gnuassembly (Freenode IRC), we

So Ricardo and I came up with a preliminary web site (with Ricardo
all the cute things, logo and design), which Mark deployed overnight:

Note that this list and the git repo are public, so the user/pass are

The idea is to make something attractive, positive, and fun: we

It’d be great to have it published and announced ideally by Thursday.
Looks very nice, I really like the "reinterpretations" of GNU.
Pages are written in Markdown, with the Haunt static web site
putting things together:
Eventually we could move more of the ikiwiki contents. We’ll have to
add 302 redirects from the old URLs to the new ones for things like
So technically this is done using a post-update git hook that calls
haunt to regenerate the website as soon as a commit is pushed. Haunt
isn't packaged for Debian stable, so I used guix to install it. Sadly
guix also isn't yet packaged for Debian stable, so I used guix-install
for that, then installed haunt for the git user profile.
I am not really happy about reusing the ikiwiki git repo for the
website. If you don't mind I would like to make it into its own git
repo so the wiki and website (I assume web.gnu.tools will replace
later this week).
And I think we should keep the wiki as is, just add a (big) header to
the pages which are officially maintained on the website now.
