Okay, sorry I didn't get back to you last week. Broken finger and
various other excuses...

I think you should go ahead and move the wiki to the live site, it can
only serve to help and encourage people to contribute to the content. 
The wiki content is better than the live content anyways.  A link to
the old site would be helpful though, until we are sure everything of
use is migrated.

As far as the theme goes I'd be happy to improve/tweak/maintain it. 
Giving me some sort of access to the server would probably be best so
I don't have to bother anyone else to fi little things.
