Actually, I've thought about this. I prefer a site that has the same
menu structure (and layout!) all over the place, but I also recognise
that that's up to the maintainer of the subsite. So, in order to
convince them, we have to make the menu and the new layout as easy as
possible to implement.

Next, I think we should gradually introduce the new structure. First, we
might end up with the whole 'KDE family'. As soon as the sub-site has
introduced the new menu-structure, we should add it to the new menu. I
realise that it would leave some sites outsite of the overall menu and
into the links. But this choice *will* leave the sub-site on the bottom
or even on another page ('KDE links').

That would be too bad, but we cannot (and shouldnot) force the sub-site
to go our way. I hope we can convice the majority of the sub-sites to
