I guess I've not been clear that I do like the current site a lot
better than the previous one. So, thanks for your work there! Let's
see what we can do to make it even better. =)

As I mentioned before, I think we can do some things to make the
sidebars a little more useful to developers and users too.

Here's a few suggestions - lemme know what you think:

- I think "Documentation" page is a bit misleading. I think it'd be
best if that just points straight to the user manuals. What about
"Docs (SVN Book)"? I feel that most people who are looking for
documentation are going to be actually looking for "how do I run SVN"
- not "how do I contribute". I *never* would have thought that
HACKING (or API docs or...) was under there. As for the other content
sitting on /docs/...

- I would add "Release Notes" under "Getting Subversion" - I know many
people want to just know what changed and I think giving a quick link
would be very helpful!

- As for API docs, it's sort of the odd man out. A few thoughts -
maybe svnbook should point at it too? What do you think?

- I like the term "Community", but wonder if that's slightly
misleading. What if we made the heading a link to the "Community
Guide"? Or, "Community (Guide)" with (Guide) being the link?

- I agree that it's important to have "mailing lists" and "issue
tracker" on the sidebar. But, it's..."Getting Involved"...hmm...what
if we added a link to the sidebar called "Contributing Code"? I like
that part of the "Getting Involved" page and would be nice to stress
that, IMO.

WDYT? -- justin
