Before we get started here, did we want to decide on a layout/skin. I like the ThinkWiki skin. I believe rt-linux is using a variant of this skin as well, or so said Ted. Or do we want to get more original?

First, how do I indent? I tried to find out using the Editing help link, but that page is empty. OK, so we need a buglist or feature request list also. OK, now to my actual comment: I think this is a good start. I'd say the site should be organized using portals. The main page should consist almost entirely of links to portals. Here is a list of possible portals: kernel, tools, distributions, hardware, companies, distributions, middleware, technologies --Tbird 21:48, 13 October 2006 (EEST)
I guess you figured out the indenting using colons to indicate number of tab stops. I agree with the portal idea, assuming you define a portal as a cluster of like content. The Main page layout is geared toward exactly that. I don't want to simply recreate the Table of Contents from the CELF Public Wiki though, I'd like to try to organize things more logically. I'll begin putting out the idea for 3 Main Content Clusters:
  1. Development Resources
  2. Industry Information
  3. Research & Development
I'll add subcategories directly to the Main page --Wmat 22:10, 13 October 2006 (EEST)

OK, I put up a basic structure for the main page based off of thinkwiki.orgs layout. I'll add in potential real headings soon for discussion.
