If possible I would like to set this up as a small subversion
project, as well (as the R home page is, e.g. 
	    	  -> https://svn.r-project.org/R-project-web/),
or even just as sub-directory of the ESS subversion project.

Will, are you volunteering to build a better ESS web page?
Any further / other volunteers?
