Merging FileArea and WebTeam? (was Re: Pending Mac Carbon VM 3.8.9b7 posted)

Hi guys!

IMHO the STTCPW is to merge these two Teams since updating the file area
often should also lead to updates to the website and that the file area
Team/task is so small in practice (most of the time).

This would also mean that more people can assist with the file area when
Bruce is unavailable. I still think it is wise to have a single person
as "responsible" for the file area *layout* though (I am a great
believer in personal responsibility) - so if the above sounds fine then
I think Bruce is still our man for that - operating within the WebTeam.
If as I said this sounds fine to you Bruce! :)

Deal? Jason and Bruce needs to agree, and Ken needs to get a notice that
we go for this in order to update the Team table etc.

regards, Göran

PS. Btw, can someone please verify that the instruction works not only for me?
We should also have a "mirrors" section on the website, given that we
have at least one of course. :)
