As I said on Google Plus, this is a very good starting point.

Noted. I've updated the html mock up [1] too where necessary. I think
we should use the terminology consistently though as Tickets, Wiki and
Source (ie drop 'View' from 'View Tickets').

I believe it should still show when there is no repository. The page
will then display a message of how to set up the link to the
repository, or hide the tab and explain how to add it later.

Redesign of the search results page is almost ready. Essentially the
search box should be removed from it and the checkboxes rearranged,
more good stuff in v2 + onwards

I'm happy for it to be represented there. Options to change this via
the interface may follow in later versions.

I believe that when something that is in the Apps dropdown is selected
(ie Admin in your example), Apps should be highlighted. The Admin tab
shouldn't suddenly appear next to the others (which would set the
expectation that it can be found there) just to disappear again once
something else is clicked (causing confusion).

The question whether 'Admin' should be a tab on its own is a separate
one, it's just an example above. What I described should be true for
all Apps in the main navigation - they should stay where they are
unless intentionally moved.

Sounds liks that's more along the lines of what I described above.

Other than the type you've shown in your screenshot, what other types
of notices / warnings / messages would appear?

Works correctly in Firefox 10 on Mac OS X, can try other O/S if you need.

Two changes I've made since the last Email:
1. Updated the breadcrumb to now be in the style of Bootstrap
2. Added Help back to the metanav.
