Sounds good. Will you please update the issue so that whenever some
implements this we have the right items? Thanks. J

Thanks Julee and DougM,

I think you can have Discussion and Community in the nav bar. If I assume
correctly, a Discussion page is a list of resources: IRC, e-mail list, chat
(if we implement it), Q&A (ditto). Community still covers events, meetings,
task forces, etc. 

I do think Community Events is too narrow, as there is much more to the
community pages than events.
