  We may also want to look at doing a bit of data-collection with mysql and also
look at how we can use/incorporate a data backend to keep the data current. The
integration is straightforward. The website template has a small visitor
database it uses, but beyond that, there are limitless possibilities for using
database driven content in the site. Especially with projects like TDE. For
example, the build order and requirements could be automatically generated such
that changes to the way TDE builds (i.e. cmake for X, autotools for Y) are
automatically updated on the site as well without user intervention. The more we
can do in that regard now, the less maintenance there will be later on. That's
just an example, but anything we can do to set the site up so that it is
data-driven rather than "somebody has to update the site each time X changes",
the better off we will be -- less maintenance, less maintenance, less maintenance...
