[maemo-community] Minutes of web design meeting, 13/1/2009

From: Dave Neary dneary at maemo.org
Date: Wed Jan 14 15:36:45 EET 2009
Why the insistence on "Talk" (which anyone not currently on ITt won't
understand the meaning of) rather than "Forum" (which everyone and his
dog now knows the meaning of)? Is there some justofication I'm missing?

I'm sold on swapping Forum in for Documentation.
