Submitting changes and translations for the website

Speaking of translations, I noticed a couple old dates while updating the dive computer lists. On the other hand, I'm not noticing much difference between some of the languages I (sort-of) understand and the most current versions.
Might there be a list somewhere of who was maintaining what, so we might glean which languages need help? I ask, because it may be worth adding a "Contribute" section to the website, and a translation subsection of that. A list would make it easy to highlight what languages need the most help, and would be helpful to push a separate email to those people when translations are needed, as opposed to a general dev-mailing list call-out that may or may not be read.
If this sounds crazy, I apologize, and blame my lack of sleep.
In any case, I, for one, welcome our new Github overlord.

 Inspired by the conversation below, I have set up a new GitHub repo that
contains the complete website:

If you would like to propose changes to the website, or if you would like
to work on any of the translations (several are quite out of date), please
consider cloning this repo and submitting a pull request.

This is an experiment right now, I'm not sure how well this will work, but
it definitely seems worth a try.
