Some would be nice to give the project history.

at Docbook produced HTML I like how clean and distraction free it is. Wanted to keep that
across the board for docs. I would imagine we'll just need a Cayenne header with a backlink
to the main site, and a copyright/privacy policy footer. Anyways, I'll refactor the templates
to maybe have a single skeleton and optional menu include. Will need to play with it a bit.

Sure, that makes sense. Let me know when you are done and I'll play with the css a bit. It
is a bit ugly right now.

I can then style up the news items. Later on if we get really clever it seems we might be
able to have a feed on the side of recent Jira comments and svn commits. That would be nice
to show the activity that happens behind the scenes.
