Subject Re: Change Commons Nav to Collapsed?
Date Sun, 15 Feb 2004 17:15:36 GMT
I'm -0 to hiding the commons proper links. I think that they are a key part
of letting us and users navigate around the commons site, and are part of
keeping it one community. Also, the maven collapsable stuff is slow and
clunky and I basically hate it. (the sandbox is different for other reasons)

I would prefer to try reversing the order of project docs and commons links
before any talk of collapsable.
