I agree with Peter here and think this is not only about 
convenience. As most of the active developers rarely use the 
website I would assume, this is mostly about our public face 
to the community and people who are interested in the 
project and I think this is important. I would argue that
this isn't a super high priority item, but given the time
these problems exist, I think we should start working on that.

I'm also willing to give a helping hand here if needed.
