I think the first step in that "whole product" effort should be a main
website which serves as a portal to all the sub-projects and clients. If
you look at the openoffice.org site (which also is "powered by
collab.net") this could be a start. They too have some sub-projects (ok,
they're all included in the openoffice package, but still). A user going
to that site first sees everything about openoffice. Then, at the top
there's a tab "projects" which will then lead to all the sub-projects.
Subversion could do the same, but instead of "projects" provide tabs for
"clients" and "bindings".

(and maybe this would be finally the day where the mailing list archives
_on that site_ will work and we won't have to use other archives ;) -
btw: anyone knows when tigris.org gets updated?)

Ok, thanks. I'll keep the name then.
