My opinion: Very simple.  This is for information transfer, to the public 
as well as for our own use.

Yes.  We get this "free" for having a TC.

I would suggest that the overall maintainer create/maintain only the pages 
that apply to the whole TC; they can create a sub-area for each subgroup, 
within which that subgroup can do whatever they want.  We just need to FTP 
some pages into place.

I would say: In the first month, ten pages with significant content.  After 
that, maybe one a week.  Updates to keep the links fresh probably every week.

Time required in the first month: maybe 4 hrs/wk.  After that: maybe 1 hr/wk.

I was thinking of the W3C DOM Group site (W3C member only), which has a 
"weasel" as a logo! :-)

If someone likes generating web pages with a custom tool for no good 
reason, or likes to "style" web pages, I don't necessarily want to stand in 
their way.  But I just want a functional, accurate site; plainness is not a 
negative and I don't need dynamic content or anything.  The DocBook site is 
nice (and I happen to know it's generated from XML); if someone wants the 
tools to do this, I can point them in the right direction.
