Hi.  I'm Sean.  I'm an experienced full stack developer.  Mostly rails, sinatra, php, drupal, mysql, jquery, backbone, angular, etc.  I can also do devops stuff.  I would love to help wherever I can.
+1 for git. 
Pardon my ignorance, but is the requirement for a static site a security concern or simply an ease-of-use issue?  
Another dumb question, but when you say the site needs to work offline,  do you mean people can view the content without a web server, or that it must run on a local instance of a web sever and not require things like google's cdn version of query?
