[fdo-internals] More Site Cleanup

Is there a reason why you are staying with multiple SVN instances,
instead of merging the providers into the core and managing access at
the node level?
I'm pretty sure that Trac instances have to have a 1:1 relationship with
SVN repositories.

Good suggestion. For the tools maybe we can create an fdotools
subversion instance unless someone out there has a better idea.

In general I like your navigation approach. Where I am getting caught up
is our multiple SVN instance thing. Right now we have fdo, fdocore,
fdosdf, etc. Many of our pages have a provider list on them and each
time we add a provider we have to touch a bunch of different pages. An
alternative approach is to break the site down by provider. That is have
a main page for FDO, which links to sub-pages for the various providers
and all of their relevant information. Then when we add the PostGIS
provider instead of updating a ton of global pages all we have to do is
add the relevant pages for the PostGIS provider. Today we have a mix of
these two models, which feels really weird to me.

BTW - Any idea how Trac integrates with multiple SVN instances? Will we
need separate Trac projects for each provider or can we have a single
Trac project that links to multiple SVN instances?

	I like this idea.

	Yes, I'd have some loose comments. Here is my proposal of
structure of
	main links (these in the left column):
	- About
	-- Features
	-- Providers Overview
	-- Governance
	-- License
	-- History
	-- FDO users
	- Documentation
	-- Requirements
	-- Getting Started
	-- FAQ
	-- Wiki (-> Trac)
	- Community
	-- Mailing lists
	- Development
	-- Road Map
	-- Trac
	-- SVN
