Hi Rob

Great, glad you did all of that.

It is already live on the main page.

I don't see a privacy statement - which I think should of happened at
the same time.

I suppose that requires an update to the footer, not sure I know how to
do that - but it may be in the mail list here (I'll look)

Otherwise, I really think we either add the privacy statement now or
pull the GA injection till it is ready. It's a little thing, but not one
with much wiggle room IMO.

off to search the mail archive for instructions :)
