Seems like a lot of work, possible confusion, and we lose all the
trac integration with the wiki.

I agree! A full blown mediawiki installation for a simple site as the
gnu.org site, would be overkill IMO.

It looks like there's a desire for two things:

  - A nice looking "marketing page" (which could be static)

I have checked out the sources for the gnu.org site, and will look
into it tomorrow, and hopefully come up with some ideas and a proposal
in a couple of days.

  - And the place where we're really getting all the work done (Trac)

Exactly! This is sort of how I picture things:

- Welcome/introduction/what is gnuradio and SDR?
- Use cases/glossy examples ( think marketing :) ).
- How do I get this? -> Point to wiki at gnuradio.org

* Getting started:
 - download
 - requirements
 -install: Distro specific and generic
* Getting help
 - commercial support and training.
* Get in touch
 - mailing lists
 - irc (yes, you can actually find some of us on #gnuradio on freenode.net )
* Documentation
 - API
 - Examples (practical, not the shiny ones on gnu.org)
 - Suggested readings.
 - List of talks, presentations and videos.
* Contribute (already on gnu.org)

Puh, thats about it (concider this a note-to-self(r) and others :) )

At last, thank you for all the feedback. I hope that you find this
useful and that it will help bring GNU Radio to a larger group of
