For www.R-project.org all of R core have write access, but only a few
actually do it ;-)

Hard to tell, let's assume at least basic familiarity with HTML (but
very good familiarity to the concept of markup laguages per se).

Under www.r-project.org I think all are manual.

on CRAN all package listings are of course auto-generated (mostly
using perl scripts), the mirror list is created using R.

No, CRAN is not, as it is pulled together from various sites where
maintainers of binary distributions etc. create their parts -> the
CRAN master itself is "mirror" for the pits and pieces (e.g., windows
R base binaries are mirrored from Duncan Murdoch, windows packages
from Uwe Ligges, etc. etc.).
