It should not be to hard to produce HTML output from the texinfo sources

At the current stage the project is trying to find a
maintainer/coordinator . I do not believe moving to a new language will
be neither easy nor possible at this time.

Better stay what there is. Attracting more users and coders IMHO is more
imported and are related on visibility. Tuxfamily is not the mainstream
platform IMHO. Moving the git sources to github or bitbucket makes more
sense for ease of development.
