It still looks a lot more like a Usenet-like forum than a news posting forum
to me.

Well, for instance, the static parts of the page don't have automatically
generated navigation. If the menu stuff in SF can't do dynamic menus on
anything unless it's in the database, it's not very useful.

It seems to me we could get the software map and other pieces out of SF, and
do our own templates and menus and whatnot.
