After getting the link mailed me I now see I must have been blind not to
find it earlier. But, considering that there's first a row of buttons,
blue on red, and then another row of choices which are, almost but not
really, like them again I guess that caused my confusion.
If I should suggesta change, though, I think that under "How do I join?" a
link to the CD-pages would be a good place to duplicate
information. That's were I'd be looking first if I just scan the pages.

I do understand that priority, and agree. I hope to get more used to the
Hurd and start to conbtribute in a more meaningful way soon.
