I got a bit of time to work on it this week. But let me give you the  
easy workaround:nonav.

If you add nonav after the main url, you get a page that is 100%  
configurable. Here is what geotools looks like:


The only issue with this is that you should replicate enough of the  
links in the osgeo.org site to get users back to the main site and to  
the internal tools.

Not perfect, but one of the easiest hacks available on the CollabNet
