How so? I think the latter is likely to elicit more discussion, 
especially from people who don't like it.

Hmmm... maybe they'll just see a site that's being maintained. The 
changes I made don't need to be made often, but they did need to be 
made. I don't remember any discussion before those 4 adverts were 
slapped into the news column and then just left there, obscuring the 
news that was actually being updated.

Likewise, on the left nav front, I only actually commented out one link 
(to a site that was down), and removed one other (to docs that that said 
"this has been replaced by Zope Book chapter X and will be deleted 
soon"). The re-ordering was of the categories, I don't think I changed 
the order of anything within a category. The category order makes much 
more sense to me now, and I proposed it a few days before I made the 
change. Out of interest, what do you think of the new ordering?
