Well, www.squeakfoundation.org is a quite new setup by Brad Fuller and 
Ken Causey. Brad have just copied the pages from the old site over to 
the new one. I guess the board will have to go trough the stuff there 
and change it to reflect the current situation.

I think there is a issue with persistency on Pier.
If you have any suggestions we will be happy to hear.
