First up: I've just pushed a new version of the site with fixes for a)
missing acknowledgements b) proper titles c) the
supertypes/breadcrumbs problem.

Does http://schema.org/NewsArticle look better?

There are a few more little things to fix asap but we wanted to cut
over to the new site asap to make releases easier...

The most important thing is that we'll be able to iterate faster, and
work more collaboratively.

Thanks for the perspective. I should emphasise that Person was perhaps
a bad example to give. I'd need to check but I believe it is the type
that has the most incoming properties. http://schema.org/Product is
much more typical.

Noted!

Yes - first priority here is the machine dumps and version number.

It should make a lot of things easier :)
