Yep, at present the Advocacy site is focused on presenting to CIOs, 
CTO's, CEOs, etc.  Until we have fleshed out a really good strategy for 
targetting the different needs of different groups, lets keep the 
Advocacy site targetted well for it's present audience.

We're looking to phase out the Users Lounge and move its pieces to the 
other subsites... part of an ongoing website rationalisation plan.

Yep.  We really need to make each page be 1 field in the database, 
instead of multiple confusing fields that lead to the present difficulties.

Yep, having a centralised place for the proper co-ordination of this 
would be cool, and then other mailing lists (not the main PostgreSQL 
ones) would be able to spread the info as desired.
