I somehow missed your message. YES, it would be very nice if you could do this.
Since the whole website is now written in TeXmacs as part of the TeXmacs-doc
project, it would suffice to get an account on Savannah, give me your ID,
and maintain the news and samples pages.

Notice that I am also very interested by a small list of people who would
be willing to systematically make some publicity for new stable releases.

The plug-ins page on the website is not good enough? Notice that we
cannot point to non-free software like GNUplot (the name is misleading).

What we really need is an OpenGL plug-in. That would require some work,
but it should not be too hard (one month?).
