If you follow the thread and the commits from Kay today, you'll see that we've removed the
project leader column!

The people page is a good idea. I think that the Apache concept is very ad hoc. ooo-dev is
the place to form up teams for various activities. (I've recently read a history of the Comanches.)

I wonder if we should discuss two of the topnav buttons currently on ooo-site - Teams and

I think Teams should be renamed Project and ought to link to a new page that combines projects/accepted.html
and incubator.html. The OOo projects become tables of links into ooo-site.  People, mailing
lists and get-involved would be linked to in the podling site. An explanation that at Apache
Teams are formed on ooo-dev. If you are interested in an improvement: bring it up, help may
appear, a team may form.

I would make this new page in mdtext. I programmed a table enhancement for the CMS today that
will help keep the page compact - columns of rows.


I wonder if Develop should also go there? Does this all become a new "Get Involved"?
