The http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/ Emacs web pages are maintained in
CVS. This is for technical reasons. CVS here functions mainly as a means
to get the stuff onto the gnu.org web server, rather than as a VCS. Yes,
amazingly, people have proposed changing that to something else. It
takes sysadmin time, which is in very short supply. And CVS works fine,
so it's not a priority.

Anyone who has write access to the Emacs code repo has write access to
the web repo. Changes go live almost immediately, so please be careful.
