As you know, we have now a server to host www.matroska.org in Russia. It 
is now active, set up and all the website is there except for the 
samples part that will be redirected to free.fr...

The website has been a big mess for a long time now. And even though 
some have tried to clean it, it is still a huge mess (code, 
organisation, design).

I've spent the morning trying to fix some things :
- matroska.org, matroska.corecodec.org, matroska.free.fr should never be 
used, only www.matroska.org
- no more javascript, if you want to make a playskool website, do it on 
your own one

There are still a *lot* of thing waiting to be done. Like :
- clean XHTML code
- clean CSS code
- track broken links
- all files to download should point to dl.matroska.org
- make the code as modular and easy to maintain as possible (PHP and SSI 
if needed)
- setup a SVN/CVS repository to update the code automatically, will make 
it easier to work with the team (ie, please don't overwrite all the 
changes I just made)

To do so there are some nice tools from W3C to help you :

Also when uploading the files (in /www/matroska.org/data/) you should 
set the permissions to 775 (Read for all, Write for you and your group, 
Execute for all).
