After a very busy time for me I resurface, just to see it was a very busy time
for kde-www, too.
Chris, I agree with this totaly. Reorganisation of stuff was my intention in
working on this www-stuff. Since I was not able to do any work, I held back
my opinions. Things reached a point where I have to reconsider this approach.
I will try to catch up on the mail discussions and the actual code, before I
comment on things, but from a first glance things already cooled down a bit.
It seems there are discussions going on outside this list wich makes it a bit
hard to really catch up, so I will start with a very naive point of view.
I _strongly_ recommend, not to put up a simple redesign of the site. Why?
Because a new look indicates a new site wich may be a better point to break
compatibility to third-party sites in as few places as possible, than later
on when the site is already up.
Ok, starting to catch up on mail.
