Hey guys,
I liked the doc-section of the old site. Will there be a successor? Why 
don't you just merge the two repositories? And why did you decide to 
remove them from the site?

All the Best

We removed it because ultimately we did not have the manpower to
maintain them, and as static content they would (and did) become
outdated and potentially dangerous.  For example, the Instant
Messaging guide recommends pidgin with no mention of how buggy it is,
securing it, jailing it, or suggesting alternatives.  The Cipher Modes
of Operation guide makes no mention of authenticated encryption or how
important it is to provide authentication of your ciphertext.

The content is here: https://github.com/cryptodotis/crypto.is-docs and
specifically here
https://github.com/cryptodotis/crypto.is-docs/tree/master/md/guides
The content is free to reproduce, adapt, and improve - and I'd
encourage you to take a shot at doing so.  Any one of those articles
is potentially a lot of work to do 'right', and while I'm not of the
camp "It has to be perfect or it's useless" I don't think our Guides
section met the standard of quality we should set for ourselves.

Our current site reflects us better IMO - we are a loose collection of
folks working on a few different projects.  We're low-key, but if
you're willing to idle in irc (I suggest Amazon EC2 free micro,
screen, and irssi) we'll do our best to help get you started on a
project of ours or your own, and answer questions.
