I just posted a few bugs, but I think the most important issue is 
getting the categorization issue sorted out, and finding a consistent 
way to present primary and secondary categories. For example, which 
page exactly is the top level of "Community", and does the Fridge look 
like a child page of that category index?

Possible top-level categories:
*   "News" (features, press releases)
*   "About" (what is Ubuntu, versions, etc)
*   "Get Ubuntu" (download, Amazon, ShipIt)
*   "Development" (wiki, /developers)
*   "Partners" (though I don't understand what this section is for)
*   "Help & Support" (, community support, paid support).
