me too, even in the "Documentation" section it looks more natural

We have:
    * Get Involved
    * Committers
    * Mailing Lists
    * Documentation
    * FAQ
    * Wiki

Nadya is proposing:
    * Who We are
    * Get Involved
    * Bug Tracker
    * Mailing Lists

// Nadya, thanks for moving the FAQ higher

Famous Apache HTTP Server website [255] has:
    Get Ivolved
    * Mailing Lists
    * Bug Reports
    * Developer Info

I see no reasons to reinvent the wheel and would have chosen the
following strategy to the site reorg:
1. do as close to [255] as possible
2. Dislikes? -> Discuss! 
That promises to be a faster convergence.

[255] http://httpd.apache.org/
