The old Drupal website was very simple - a stock install of Drupal
with a nicely styled theme, some static info pages, a generic calendar
module, and an image gallery module. I don't know of any mysql dumps
of the original (I probably have some and I know Roger would have some
also) but all the info for the static pages is right there already
(mailing list info, typical meetings info, etc.). I would recommend
building it from scratch with the latest Drupal to avoid it being
immediately pwned! I don't mind doing this -- all I'd need is sftp
access and a writeable mysql database. We'd then add a couple of
admins and some regular users who can update the front page etc.
