I am definitely volunteering to look at making these changes, but don't
have the time immediately.

I intend to look at this over Xmas / January and hope to submit some
patches. I've done some work with the GuideXML stuff used in the Gentoo
docs and site before, and I know where the items I want to change are
through some asking around.

My plan was to implement a public copy of my proposed changes on my own
server and submit patches to Bugzilla.

I was going to take the changes in bite-size chunks - so first I'd
simply redo the menus (without changing the actual site structure where
possible - which it should be I believe).

I'd then look at the extra pages I suggested after that.

I'll take a look at beandogs packages site to see what he's done -
thanks for the pointer.
