Main landing page prototypes completed/subpage structures?/domain leads?

Hi all,

I have now created landing pages for the main WPD page and all it's immediate subpages. So

Would eventually lead to

Unless anyone has major objections, I suggest we stick to this overall layout. I can then get these implements as soon as:

* Seb finishes the first icon set
* I can get help from the template ninjas in creating me a template that will generate the floated topic boxes.
* I can get help from someone to add the CSS to style said template. I could do this myself if someone gave me the keys to the CSS files, and a little help with finding things.

This leads me to follow-on questions:

1. What will the sub-landing pages look like? I for one think that we don't need any special features to implement those. If the page is just reference docs, we can auto-generate one of those sortable tables. If the page is structured tutorials, we can manually create a page of headings and links. If it is a combination, we can use a combination of both. Any further thoughts? Would that do for now?

2. I would like to find topic domain leads for each of the major topic areas linked to above. The domain lead for each topic would be expected to:

* distribute and manage work being done in each domain
* periodically check the domain material to make sure it is up to date, changes are ok, and disputes are settled reasonably
* Seek out new people to work on the domain.

what do people think of this idea?

I would quite happily be domain lead for General concepts, beginners, HTML, and CSS. But I don't have time to do all 4, so I think i'll grab CSS and general concepts for now.

That leaves


Any immediate takers? Where a domain is really large, like JavaScript, I think it would be more than reasonable to have multiple domain leads.
