I can understand how there wouldn't be any financial/human resource
from Ericsson for this kind of thing, but I didn't want to rule out
the possibility of opening things up to a team of volunteers.

Another naïve suggestion: Ericsson donates erlang.org to the community
(who enlists a team of volunteers to develop a more "typical" language
orientated site), and relocates their new OTP site to erlang-otp.com
(or similar).

Otherwise, develop the new language orientated site at a new domain,
e.g. erlang-programming.org (admittedly a bit lengthy, but erlang-
lang.org would be silly!).
