Hi David, Klaus-Jürgen, all,
please re-read what Florian wrote in this thread:
I can't make any promises with regards to leaving out the "test" of
the website before Christmas, as this requires some more
In my understanding this means: He wants to put the page live (without
"test") *as soon as possible*.
But because of the necessary infrastructure this will take more than a
few days - thus possibly leading to the page update only in January.
So Florian can't bring up the website *now* - that's a great pity

linking to http://www.documentfoundation.org as it is done now.

the download page) and links to the most interesting areas. Twitter and
blog in the "scrolling area" are ok, but I think a "news" area is more
important than those tow.
