Description

http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~justin/newlayout.html

I figure we need a section that specifically mentions the mailing
lists/newsgroups (Status -> Mailing lists), and a short history/reason for
existence of DragonFly page (About -> History). The rest of it is logical
cleanup.

I'm specifically interested in suggestions for other needed sections or
information - I'd like to get past fiddling with layout and onto actual
content.

I think the mail archive should be linked to from the mailing lists
page. At least that is the first place I would look for to find
archives. By the way, why do the mailing lists point to the dbsdlog?

I would be even more radical.  Have a 'Community' section that
includes the mailing list information, the mailing list archives,
USENET news server interface, and Wiki.

Good point.

Cause I'm too impatient to do a correct working layout.

When you say "USENET interface", do you mean a description of how to
connect to the news server (which can be placed with the mailing list
info), or an actual www-to-nntp gateway?

The nntp interface for the mailing lists.

It'll be nntp:// links for now, then. Here's version 2, gone even more
radical:
