I guess I missed the emails where this was decided.  My email was 
semi-broken from June 10th til June 15th, so if someone could forward 
me all the pdweb emails from that time period, I would be most 
appreciative (no archive for pdweb :-(

But I still think it is a good idea to have a distinct Development 
section (maybe better to call it Developers) that encourages people to 
join the group development effort.

The site is called pure-data.org, so I think "About" should be fine.  
But I think that we don't really need this "about" section anyway, 
since the news would be under "News", and the basic description of what 
pd is could be in the Documentation, like a section under Documentation 
called "About Pure Data".

I think "News" as the start page is good.
