This is one of the reasons in my mockup[1] (sod the visual aspect), I
was attempting to hide the underlying technologies and show where the
users/developers/downloaders/news were clustering. So, intermingling
showing segregated *content*, not different technologies.

Does it really matter if the development community are active on "Qt
becomes LGPL" on maemo-developers or the "Developers" section of

Again, agreed (and if I said anything different, I was wrong).
Initially I'd been pushing for this segregation based on the initial
use cases and content, rather than technology (i.e. distinguishing
wiki from static docs is fairly useless to most visitors). However,
there *was* quite a bit of pushback on this in the initial IRC
meeting, IIRC.
