Yet another content management system.  We used to have a dynamic site until
pm.org got hacked one too many times and they decided to host static web pages only.

I really can't imagine it looking bad for Melbourne.pm.org to redirect to
anywhere else, but that might just be me.

Scott, Paul and I are the Melbourne.pm.org maintainers.  I wrote the current
content mid last year after I got sick of no content at all (due to the pm.org
issues).  I'd be *delighted* to add more content if anyone wants to volunteer
any.  I'd even be willing to write further content on various topics if anyone
indicates that they *want* it.

Of course one of the big joys of having a wiki is that I don't have to be
involved, you can all just add content as you go.  You'll see that I've been
keeping a meeting history.  Feel free to add to it.

Realising that we'd keep the Melbourne.pm.org domain, and it would just redirect
(possibly after doing something cute in the same way that http://sydney.pm.org
	* why do you like the idea of a separate website more?
	* what would you like to appear on that separate website?

All the best,
