Your changes look very good to me, Melissa. I like the new menu bar,
which I think simplifies the page a great deal.

Thanks for your work.


PS: While clicking links from your work, I found:
http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/ToDo which is *very* out-of-date. For
instance, the first item is, "figure out when 2008 elections are." On
the other hand, item three is "compile a list of "core" projects in
Ubuntu" -- and I saw that discussed in the scroll-back today in IRC.
So we have some live items in there still. -v
