Don't worry, I can't tell either.  To be honest, I thought I had already
pushed up some of these pages, but was wrong.  Apologies with the email

So far, here's the big changes I've done:

- Split mentor guide into several parts (it was way too big)
- Not converted proposal, and names.  Not that I don't want to, but haven't
gotten to them yet.
- Not converted the Eclipse and Maven release guides, need to find a better
home for those.  I'll convert those if I can't find a better home.

Word of mouth?  Its going to require significant QA to verify.  Many of the
links won't work, so need reviewers.

The hope is to actually make it as simple as CMS, without requiring the
overhead of infra running/maintaining CMS.  Greg's team has been testing
with github integration on the infra site, and I plan to test that here as
well.  Basically, you would be able to edit online via github and commit,
as long as you have write access to the repo.  If you don't have write
access a pull request would be created automatically.

This is all conceptual at this point, mind you.
