Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Feedback on site redesign
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 17:08:20 GMT
A small item I noticed is that the "Contributing to Apache CloudStack as a Non-Committer" page
actually has this link.

http://incubator.apache.org/cloudstack/develop/non-contributors.html

It says non-contributors instead of non-committers or may be it should say contributors.
