This will involve some work, and so we would not want to wait for this to happen in order to make the code accessible again.

Also, not all of Nevow will be moved into Twisted.  Currently the plan (as defined by some conversations between Jean-Paul and myself) is to move the resource model, and the templating layer (omitting all the deprecated crud with the 'context' object from both), in two separate steps.  We're not planning to move Athena into Twisted, as it's a large pile of aging JavaScript, and would involve a significant amount of browser-based testing in order to get right, which Twisted doesn't currently need.  Twisted wants to generate HTML in a few places - directory listings, error pages - but doesn't currently need any two-way browser communication, and even if it did, Athena would need to be stripped down to a much smaller core in order to be appropriate for this.

If you'd like to help with that then please let me know.  As you can see from the steadily-increasing open ticket count in the weekly emails, we need more people to help in general.
