Apologies for the very late response, I fell behind on email processing
for a while.

TurtleArt's home page in the wiki has plenty of good examples to rip for
the website. For the other activities, I collected several
representative screenshots for use in talks. My slides are already
published in the wiki, but I can't retrieve the link right now because
I'm working offline.

We can do that on Sunjammer, our main server. If you want, the
infrastructure team can host the entire application, but you'd have to
switch to a free web framework such as LAMP, Rails, Drupal or (I hope
not) Django.

Another idea could be integrating with the existing ASLO (php) or
perhaps rebasing ASLO on the current upstream Remora codebase (python).
