Subject: [boost] [website] Move guidelines and developer documentation to Trac?

Hello all,

The guidelines and developer documentation on the boost site are
getting a bit old, and no one's really updating them. Meanwhile new
developer documentation is being written on the Trac wiki. It seems
confusing to split the documentation over two sites, and most
developers find it easier to update the wiki so it might be a good
idea to move all the developer documentation over to the wiki and the
Trac would become the 'developer's site'.

This could also help improve the main boost site. It could be simpler
and more focussed towards users. Some developer pages would probably
have to remain on the site for technical reasons (such as test
results) and some articles might not be appropriate, or we might not
have the author's permission to put them on a wiki.

The developer section would be replaced by a page suggesting how to
contribute to boost (along the lines of We'd
also keep the calendar on the main site in some form, as it can be
useful for users.

Any thoughts?
