== Customizable Sidebar ==
I found an extension for mediawiki that allows a user-customizable sidebar
I'm finding myself clicking the same links over and over to get to my most commonly used pages. Would anyone else use this?

i'd like that, as long as i don't have to spend more than 5 minutes figuring out how to use it -andrew
== Move News ==
I moved the news to a separate page. Some of the links are getting long in the tooth (though still important), and the CBC news anchor with her mouth half-open had been on the front page for quite a while.
Moving the news to a separate page makes the Content area more prominent. However, it also makes the page look less interesting, so we should consider ways of improving the visual appeal of the front page.
== New front page ==
New front page installed yesterday after a number of consultations. Main features:
* More compact format, based on Wikipedia front page
* Colour styled to match OpenSource@Seneca logo
* Uses templates for Events and Planet Feed
* Fast-nav links for current courses and communities with which we're involved
* Brief explanation of what CDOT is
* Re-branded under the CDOT name
* "Main Page" top-level heading removed via CSS
We should consider migrating from the OpenSource@Seneca logo to a CDOT logo at some point.

== Added Logos ==
I added the logos for the 5 projects/communities we work with to the bottom of the front page. '''Note that due to Trademark guidelines, we're required to hyperlink the Fedora logo to'''.
