Yeah, that's fair. I'm primarily interested in content feedback at the
moment, but I;ll toss a little color onto the sidebar.

It's really all about you, Lieven. :-) But yeah, we need to have a link to
a bug tracker landing page on the left-nav, to be sure. I'll add something

getting.html is a mess. I'd love to hear Hyrum's thoughts about it, because

I do believe there's value in revealing where the project is going in a
