With your site redesign, I've posted before, regardless of distro, the archlinux
website does the best job I've ever seen in integrating content, wiki, forum,
package database, bug tracker and git in a seamless site footprint. The context
sensitive search (package search, wiki search, etc..) is a really neat setup.
The package part of the site is clean.

If you are redoing the Trinity site, go visit and type
'kdebase' and look at the auto-search-suggestions, visit the package database,
choose a package to view, the click "View Changes" in the top-right to visit the
git interface, then (notice the consistent menubar that remains even when
drilled down into git), click on the wiki menu at the top and type 'Trinity',
and so on. It is well worth a visit for ideas and an example of a good, clean,
consistent interface across all the modules that make up the site.

Why is it so good? Answer: you do not have to know the site or arch to be able
to intuitively navigate every module. Try finding a specific patch of the debian
site if you don't know it -- you get the drift.

If we are doing a new site, let's do it right.

(and replace Foswiki with Mediawiki while we are at it :)
