Rather than having a site-wide tree, we'd have page- or tree- contextual
sidebar information, eg. on the release-team pages, we'd have links to the
latest unstable start page, special bugzilla pages, policies and so on...
But all of it would be managed for a tree (say, under start/ or projects/)
or on particular pages, rather than at a global level. I guess it is easier
to describe with actual pages, which I'll have to do for you soon. :-)

It's not going to matter too much until more of the build system is folded
in (and that will definitely happen on w.g.o first, because d.g.o is pretty
reasonable atm), so keep going for now. Content is far more important at
this stage! :-)
