Awesome. We have few people who are excited about web development 
amongst us, and I'm not one of them either. I'm just taking care of what 
needs doing most because nobody else is and it's really important. As 
you can probably tell, there's lots to be done.

First off, have you seen our bugtracker at https://trac.torproject.org? 
It is used not just for code bugs, but also website issues, 
enhancements, etc. Take a look at the website component there.

Our website is written in WML, an html-like language with some 
extensions to facilitate includes and supporting some calculations etc. 
If you don't know it already, it should not be hard to get familiar with 
it at all. We maintain the website from a git repository, available at 
https://gitweb.torproject.org/project/web/webwml.git/ - do you know your 
way around git?

Also feel free to swing by our irc channels #tor and #tor-dev on the 
OFTC network, that's where we do most of our communication/discussion.

Cheers and all the best
