Dude, please revert this change. One of the problems I'd like to get away
from with this new website is broken idea that "if it's something I need, it
must be something everybody needs". Our left-nav isn't a Site Map (though I
wouldn't mind one bit if it pointed to one). Secondly, I consider it really
poor form to have links in a site's primary navigation menu lead to
destinations that lack that menu. But thirdly, I just don't think the world
should suffer that out-of-place link simply because you apparently couldn't
manage to take the first hit from a Google search for "Subversion HACKING".

I've committed some changes to the Documentation page that, I hope, will
hope you and others find the HACKING document more easily in the future.
