Hi Eric, all,

I was specifically asking about the scripts and props that EOWG spent 
many hours on, to eventually get to the videos. These were neither in 
the default branch nor visible on github.io so that links to these in 
various minutes and wiki pages are now broken. It is also hard to know 
that these resources exist, but are hidden in a different branch. For 
example, should we ever want to add new videos or update existing ones.

I don't know the redesign technicalities and why we may or may not need 
different branches and new respositories -- all fine by me. I just ask 
that valuable knowledge assets, like these scripts, not be removed.

I don't know how this applies to other repositories too.
