It's been mildly amusing (and annoying at the same time) reading these
exchanges that have very little to do with the reason for starting this
thread. I only volunteered to help, based on this:

"The current website needs to be better organized and some content
directed at end-users, some content could be taken from the wiki. The wiki
needs to be restructured and outdated pages need to be removed or

That quote, by the way, came from
http://wiki.openindiana.org/oi/Getting+Involved, under Website and Wiki.

So, even the person who wrote that saw a need to target end-users, which
is why I volunteered to set up something that will appeal more to
end-users. But the thread has devolved to this.

The demo is still up at http://linuxbsdos.com/askopenindiana. If the
community does not want it, if the decision makers are against it, I can
just take it down. It took less than 10 minutes to put it up, and will
probably take less than that to take down.
