First off, we never could have gotten the initial site migrated over
with a review requirement. Especially given that it would have been
unlikely to get review. Look at the lists, it was tried.

Second, I do not believe anyone is suggesting you do not have a right
to update the site now or in the future. The site nav, the overall
look and feel are always going to be "religious" issues. They already
have been. I agree Mike should not have just reverted your commit,
especially if you perceive it that way. But I do not think it was
unreasonable to question the commit or explain what we were trying to
do. Perhaps he should have started the conversation that way, rather
then ask you to revert.

Once the Developer Resources link is restored, I think the right
outcome will have been reached.
