Subject Re: [doc][website] finalizing changes to nav pane
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2007 08:59:34 GMT
Nadya,

What do you think about renaming "Community"->"Who we are" reference
on the first page with "Committers"? I think this would be more direct
and less confusing. People might expect to see a list of community
members when they click to "Community"->"Who we are".

Thanks.
