I am not saying that we need such a fancy webpage, it's more that I
believe it is important to attract new users and new developers as well,
and that a more up to date webpage would help give a better impression
of the maturity kst has reached. The advantage with a CMS is that many
people can easily post news on the webpage without web development/HTML
knowledge, which usually means more fresh information. Setting up such a
tool should not take significantly longer than hand-coding a minimal
page, but I am not saying it is necessary. As long as kst looks good and
attracts people, I think it is OK. 
FYI, I have checked the services offered to porjects hosted by sf.net
and they offer a MySQL database + Apache server with PHP. I believe it
would be possible to install a CMS there. I might give it a try for
gaiw, just to see how it works and how long it would take. I will keep
you informed...
