Well, here's the current list (which will likely grow with each
revision)...let's see how it wraps just in an e-mail:

Sven Vermeulen (Author), Daniel Robbins (Author), Chris Houser (Author),
Jerry Alexandratos (Author), Seemant Kulleen (Gentoo x86 Developer),
Tavis Ormandy (Gentoo Alpha Developer), Aron Griffis (Gentoo Alpha
Developer), Jason Huebel (Gentoo AMD64 Developer), Guy Martin (Gentoo
HPPA developer), Pieter Van den Abeele (Gentoo PPC developer), Joe
Kallar (Gentoo SPARC developer), John P. Davis (Editor), Pierre-Henri
Jondot (Editor), Eric Stockbridge (Editor), Rajiv Manglani (Editor),
Jungmin Seo (Editor), Stoyan Zhekov (Editor), Jared Hudson (Editor),
Colin Morey (Editor), Jorge Paulo (Editor), Carl Anderson (Editor), Jon
Portnoy (Editor), Zack Gilburd (Editor), Jack Morgan (Editor), Benny
Chuang (Editor), Erwin (Editor), Joshua Kinard (Editor), Tobias
Scherbaum (Editor), Grant Goodyear (Reviewer), Gerald J. Normandin Jr.
(Reviewer), Donnie Berkholz (Reviewer), Ken Nowack (Reviewer), Lars

That's a lot'a names :)

Well, part of this is how ugly it looks with a gray outline in that nice
purple background, and part of it is how we need somewhere for subnav to
go, by subnav I mean the "FAQ | Search | Memberlist | Usergroups |
Statistics | Profile | You have no new messages | Log out" links the
forum has and the links we'll need under each toplevel section of our
site, say you click on "About" a minimum we need to link to
philosophy and social contract from there...and all our toplevel apps
could make use of this, bugs, packages, and archives for instance.

Well, the horizontal scroll bar is ok with me since it allows us to
maintain the integrity of the design on the screen, but I don't
understand what vertical scroll bars are being displayed there for...we
should _never_ have vertical scroll bars, and only have horizontal
scroll bars when the content is too wide for the display area.

See above, sorry :)

I can create xsl from Aaron's code in about an hour and I'm sure we can
come up with a box to use for testing, I'd just need to talk to
