So do I! I did not notice it on the first few items, then found it
obvious on a following one, and went back :)
I am not really happy about reusing the ikiwiki git repo for the
website. If you don't mind I would like to make it into its own git
repo so the wiki and website (I assume web.gnu.tools will replace
later this week).
Every technical solution will be fine with me. Once done, I would be
interested in getting write access and add GNU MPC with a link to its
web page to the list of projects.

- “Wondering what this is? Here are the highlights:” sounds odd. It
comes out of nowhere and I’m left wondering where the “highlights” are
derived from. Since all of the items there are backronyms of “GNU”, I
wonder if we could instead state something to the effect of “What GNU

disrupts the flow.
GNU not having the reputation of being the most up-to-date project, I would
also drop any hints to CVS. Maybe add "some of us even know what a pull
request is"? Hm, I do not know whether this is true :)
Thanks for all involved in making this happen!
