Good job! I am glad to see it has been updated. I must say I am
very relieved not to be in the critical path to progress any more.
It's hard to give up the control/influence I once had, but I'll
have to get over it :)

I suggest running through the list of test cases [1] before each
update of the public site. (Of course, it would be nice to
automate that step.)

One problem seems to persist even after today's maintenance
release; the "outline" etc sections are not there, even though
the navigation links are included at the top. e.g.:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.w3.org/;ss;sp;outline

BTW, if I notice small things like typos, should I go ahead and
commit changes myself, or send bug reports here? Either is fine
with me. (doing the commits directly seems more efficient)

Also, I hope to contribute a few QA tips soon.
