Subject Re: [skin][fluido] Menu location

Hi Ivan!
the reason why I started adding menus in 2 places is that while the
sidebar is fixed in the page, the topbar is always available while
scrolling the pages; immagine the skin applied to the Apache Commons
Digester guide[1], once reached the bottom page, users have the
commodity to avoid scrolling up to open a new guide page.

My proposal is to keep it ATM to experiment and collect feedbacks from
users too, maybe if we are lucky enough we attract more users to
express their opinion :)

Have a nice WE!
