DONE (already updated in my home "live" export).
You can see that the new banner is larger than the one. It is not a big 
issue by now, maybe we should revert to 2 column style.

Fixed to say "betas" and removed references to specific betas, otherwise 
this would be outdated in a week ;-)

that we have two totally different looks.

Done: Added it as the first link of "Related Projects". I don't like 
this too much but it is better than nothing, and we should find a 
consistent way to publish all of the projects (mime4j, postage, jsieve..)

About the look (skin) jSPF site is generated throught maven2. Maven2 has 
various level of customizability for its site generation tool.
The first is to use one of the default skins:
Stylus: http://maven.apache.org/
Default: http://people.apache.org/~bago/james/www/jspf/

The second is to create a simple skin that make only use of css and images.

The third is to create a skin module to alter the generation of the website.

I already excluse the last because it would take longer than our 

What we could try to do is to create a maven2 skin that somewhat 
remember the current apache website and then use it for the main website 
and for james projects.

It is really easy to generate james-server website using maven2, so this 
option should be the easiest.

 Everything else is a go.  I'd really like to publish the site, with all of the JAMES v2.3
beta content; we just can't say that v2.3 is released until it is.



PS: if no one will raise his voice I'll wait the 72 hours for this vote 
to expire and run an "svn update" on minotaur.
