Engaging harassment mechanism.

Just to let everyone know what's le going on ... at the moment the
currently active activity (well, that was some bad English right
there) is that emkay has a dump of the weo db and is working to
migrate the data to Jekyll so we can host weo on github.  That should
remove some storage and bandwidth concerns of hosting weo on an aws
instance; that instance can be used for mail only now, making things a
bit cheaper + easier.

Apart from that, everyone has gone quiet.  December 15th is looming.
