Looks pretty good.  Would be nice to show the status of each PLIP  
there if it's not hard.

Have we considered how we're going to handle the search function once  
plone.org and trac look the same visually?  If we just use the  
separate search features of each product it's a bit non-ideal:
- You will search different things depending on where you are in the  
site, but there's no indication of that to the visitor if trac and the  
rest of the site have the same design
- Trac search kinda sucks for finding things other than tickets.  e.g.  
search for "commit access", which I'd expect to be a common query in  
the development section.  Trac lists a bunch of tickets requesting  
access, and you can't find the relevant doc for HOW to request access  
unless you uncheck the Tickets checkbox and search again.
