Hi, my name is siddhartha, I am a undergrad student in IT, in my senior (read 12 hours per week of coursework) year. Will have lots of time to lurk and contribute. I like the words usability, design, static sites etc, i like to do Python/js/HTML/CSS with interest for perl/ruby too. I know my way around Linux too, a little bit.

+1 for jekyll. 
I think the "homepage for novices, links from there for other audiences" is a suitable idea because that unifies everything (easier to maintain, translate etc).

The site also needs to work offline as well. This means self-contained
and zero 3rd party requests. We don't want to host dynamic sites. We
have 5 webservers capable of serving static content, nothing more.

:  * The content must be kept in a version control system. The website
:    was kept in Subversion, but it should probably be migrated to Git.

Maybe open to darcs, hg, fossil, etc. I think we want a distributed
version control system, not just any old VCS.
