I've redrafted quite a few of the pages. I'd appreciate any feedback
people might have.
Me and Andreas have been working on the site at the Bangalore hackfest,
and have been discussing the content that should go on the desktop and
get involved pages. We've come up with a new structure for the footer,
which indicates the content that we'll be aiming to have on the site
when it relaunches:
The GNOME Project
The GNOME Foundation
We'll be cracking on with this over the next few days, so please chip in
with ideas and comments.
