I agree we need to have the right balance. I just feel that the
planning and specs info is hidden in the right nav. It's such an
important part of what the PPD team does, to me it seems more
prominent to have it on the main content page even though it's just a
set of links. Not many people are going to care that much about the
old notes, I think they could even go on a separate page really and
just have the more recent notes on the main page if we are trying to
keep things concise.
