I imagined a "blog" type system too, also for the ability for
individuals to maintain the projects page themselves. An archive of
discussion topics would be nice, if you miss a meeting you can go to the
CLUG webpage and get the papers and any associated material.
I guess the choice is between a simple system that doesn't cost much to
setup but requires constant time to maintain in the future, or a more
complex system (like a blog) that costs far more to setup initially but
maintenance forevermore is partly shared by everyone and hence costs far
less. There's also the security risks, a simple, static page type of
thing is high security while a CGI blog is ... not.
Perhaps such a satisfactory system could be a clug project...
