I don't think moving the page to svn.webkit.org will help. It will
cause the "elite cabre" to need svn.webkit.org commit access to do
Given how little work is done on www.webkit.org it seems unlikely the
move will cause more maintenance to be done on webkitgtk.org.
I guess if it were me I'd just throw the site up on GitHub, as that's
administer and public.
