[tdwg-tag] another poke about Audubon Core status

My immediate practical concern is that I am creating slides for various conference presentations and it is awkward to link to the official pages such as the TDWG AC page  or the list of standards  that indicate a non-DRAFT status.
Further investigation shows that maybe I just need to use the Audubon Core Term List document in the wiki  when I am sharing info about AC to the world?

Thanks for your offer.
As far as I recall, the TDWG executive decided at the last meeting to move onto a whole new platform and put contractor money aside to make it happen.
I’m reluctant to point you at the tangled mess of the current system when I suspect it is to be replaced anyway. It really is a convoluted mess of Typo3 plugins, which try and keep a bunch of backend systems in sync and dues to bugs in there it does not work as expected. I really don’t think it is something you want to get into, but I sympathise that the TDWG site is broken and no-one is maintaining it… a simpler vanilla CMS solution that even requires more manual text editing etc. will be a far more manageable solution in my opinion.
@TDWG Executive folks - is it still the intention to contract out and do a basic CMS site?
If not, I’ll try and pull up the code but I’d need your approval to get him a DB dump as it holds user credentials / subscriptions etc. Please can you advise us? Anything we can do to help?

I see in the tdwg-tag mailing list archives that the status of the Audubon Core Standard has been discussed recently:
So consider this another poke about getting the web site updated with the official status of the Standard.
If there is anything I can do to facilitate the web site update, please let me know (as in, I am volunteering to hack code or whatever is needed).
