If we _had_ this access, we could. As has been explained repeatedly, we don't. 
Yes, we can take a slash-and-burn approach and just remove all the content on 
the website (which is the plan once the new website is ready), but we can't 
update it. 

What is _neccesary_ if icecast 1.x is going to continue is a maintainer, not 
just someone who can write a couple of paragraphs on a website.

If you want to do that - take over maintaining icecast 1.x, we can organise 
website access once the new website is up so that you can add appropriate 
sections on the old version.
