[Fsfe-ie] A fresh and accessable source for information on swpats in EU

Sorry if I am treading on any toes here, but does anyone else feel that 
websites currently providing information on swpats in the EU are not as 
accessable as they could be?

For example, http://swpat.ffii.org/ smacks of someone being a tad 
over-enthusiastic when it comes to what can be achieved with <div> tags 
and the "background-color" CSS attribute.  The result is a website that 
is rather off-putting IMHO.

I would be willing to provide hosting on one of my (well connected and 
well adminstered) servers for a cleaner site, possibly based on some 
kind of user-editable CMS (<plug>such as 
http://quickcms.sf.net/</plug>).  It could include facilities such as a 
bug-tracker-style database for keeping track of efforts to persuade 
politicians and such-like.  Since I have root on the server I can 
install whatever is needed (within reason).

Since I have a billion projects going on, someone else will need to 
undertake the grunt-work, but I could take care of everything up to 
having a domain pointed at an instance of QuickCMS, others could take it 
from there (adminstered via a user login on a debian box).

Any takers?
