I must have forgotten to create one at the time. I just created one,
so the link should work now. All I did was add the News.

I'm guessing Katie can answer this one, but I can create one if you
need me to.

Isn't that what I originally did w/ the one column and the two

I think originally there would not be so many things to edit. You may
be updating the 'News' regularly, but the Apps side bar, QA side bar,
etc., most of them will stay the same.

Add '---' at the bottom of the wiki page?

Using 'People' as a title just doesn't seem right to me. I might
suggest 'Teams' and links to the 'Apps Team' or 'Platform Team'. And
when you click on it will take you to a teams page. Or the Teams web
home, which is giving the user a high level view of the organization.
If you want to be specific of the team members, then perhaps you
could use 'Team Member' if you're looking at the PPD team (wiki
Based on your original taxonomy work: http://wiki.osafoundation.org/
For example in Cosmo, it may be useful for users coming to the wiki
to understand who the committers are so if someone comes along and
are interested in contributing some code to a particular part of the
app, they would know who to ask. A link on the right hand side bar to
the Cosmo team page is sufficient to me. Listing all the team members
and identifying who the ppl do not seem necessary to me.
From my understanding the rights side bar is not supposed to be a
right navigational element, but more of an aid for announcements and
perhaps relevant cross links to the wiki page you are looking at.

Like I said, I originally built the template based on your taxonomy
work. You'll notice you were using 'Teams' in various different ways:

had built so many includes and had them be customize-able for each
