I *thought* sometime back we'd had the discussion on the "user" facing 
area -- along with whatever subdomains we wanted to 
use there -- vs the development portion currently on Apache -- e.g (or currently There was some need 
(reason) to separate these as I recall.

for some recommendations/observations I had made a while back.

We really DO need to discuss combining "projects" from the "old" world 
vs the new. Especially with regard to the development areas I would 
think. Maybe I'll start that discussion. It  could be that all previous 
area having to do with development should just be linked to the 
"development" web site.

ALL the web areas have been moved over to our temporary holding area but 
nothing has been done with them currently.

yes... this needs better definition.
