     A better list would probably be netbsd-docs if you really want
to start a discussion.

} isn't that kind of very heavy and complicated?

     Depends who you ask.  Also depends on the goals.  For the most
part though, editing a webpage is a simple matter of editing the
.xml file (for which there are plenty of examples), commit it, type
"make", and commit the .html file.  The package meta-pkgs/netbsd-www
will install everything that is needed.
