Dear PostgreSQL Users and Developers,

We would like to propose the following design as the basis for a new 
postgresql.org.

http://treehou.se/~emily/postgresql_design_proposal.png

We are submitting this proposal as we, and many other users and 
developers, feel that the current site portrays PostgreSQL in a less 
than flattering light.

Whilst the beta concept design is a great improvement upon the existing 
site, we believe that our design proposal conveys a professional image 
and portrays PostgreSQL as distinct amongst open source projects that 
use a similar look and feel to the beta site.

Additionally, this proposal focuses on reducing information overload, 
providing a clean interface while simplifying and consolidating the vast 
amount of material on the site.

A survey of users and colleagues suggests that there may be interest in 
adopting this design, and so, we would like to know if there is interest 
amongst pgsql-www and pgsql-advocacy.

We are willing to move forward with the design of the rest of the site 
if there is some interest in our proposal. We estimate that full 
migration and consolidation of current content and sites would take 
approximately one month, if not less, using a content management system 
to ease administration and maintenance. The main site can be finished in 
line with the release of PostgreSQL 8, which I understand is a couple of 
weeks away.

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards,
Omar Kilani
