[Tor www-team] Help in migrating from Drupal 5 to 7

I had some time this weekend, so just to see if I could, I managed to import all comments to a self-hosted Juvia server. These get loaded into static pages generated by Jekyll. In addition, I also imported all the old events from the blog into their own category in Jekyll too.

Anyway, just a thought on how to *in theory* move forward with this...

- apt-get install jekyll
- Hosts static jekyll blog. New posts generated with git hook after new Markdown files (posts) are committed.

- Self-hosts Juvia comments, since Juvia is a rails app. Comments are delivered through a javascript snippet in the Jekyll blog post template. 

Seems like less headache than Drupal to me. Plus the blog content is nicely stored in Markdown files and away from any database. 

Andrew - Juvia is third-party, yep, but at least it can live in it's own lil container...
