I thought I'd chip in on this discussion as a low-level user, because  
the discussion had drifted away into technical discussions about  
crashes on various platforms.

Where I live there is a community-led cinema starting up, and in  
order to function they've split up organisation into different  
groups.  There is the planning group, the bar staff group, the  
marketing group, etc.  Perhaps the PD community could do something  
similar, and by doing a little bit of organisation make these big  
jobs into something more manageable.  Personally, I don't think I  
know enough about PD to take on the job of re-editing the homepage -  
my point was that PD could present a friendlier face to the world.   
What that face should look like has to be decided by more than one
