The delay has not been all because of the iTeam, a lot of it has been
because not everything was handled by the mad rush to get things done
"do-ocracy" style.

Many pages have been left behind and others were moved so links are
broken - it's this part that has taken longer than I like because in
the middle of my work on that task I suddenly found myself having to
look for a new job.

Another issue I found last night was that the route for blog posts was
changed for no reason that I can see other than "do-ocracy" decided to
do-ocracy it. I'll be fixing that in the pelican config.

Yes, this has taken longer than I like and I apologize for any
demotivation that I have caused.
