I've just dropped another version - let me know if this is more what you 
were thinking.

I moved the installation instructions, though I thought it helpful to 
have the "latest stuff" bit at the top.

I've fiddled with this too and taken on some suggestions.

This was because the subprojects weren't shown. I've changed this a bit 
now - but they are more important than the related ones.

That requires fiddling with xdoc, which is out of scope for now. I've 
actually moved the developers stuff to the bottom, but am trying to 
think about how it could be more of a "contributors" section.

Yeah, I'm thinking you might be right, though the roadmap probably only 
makes sense to people already familiar. However, the backwards compat 
and release notes in the first menu are likewise.
