    Perhaps you should have somewhere for other access methods. Maybe an "Other" forum for issues related to issues with access via filesystem, ssh+svn, webdav autoversioning, viewsvn, etc. Of course this might simply fit under General...

    Maybe have an advertising section for people offering consulting or hosting (ahem) services to show off their goods

    That said, I like the format overall. The colors work well with the svn logo.

    I had actually planned on setting up a Google AdSense account for the front page (to help with hosting costs). I also like the idea of Subversion-specific services being advertised.

    My only concern would be how to implement it and be fair at the same time. I know there probably aren't many right now, but how would you suggest handling dozens of Subversion service companies that would like their site linked on the front page? Perhaps dedicate a forum to this? Any thoughts?

      Not sure if you got my email earlier, but I can host the site on one of my servers at no cost, no obnoxious ads, etc. I'd just like to help promote the community.

      strong svn community = more svn users = more customers

      I think the best would be to keep all commercial offers and requests off the front page and keep them in one forum so people who are interested can look.

          Forum seems overkill to me. Could create a thread and pin it near the top. Does phpBB support that?

            After looking around for awhile, it seems that there aren't many Subversion-related companies around. In this case, it might be ok to go ahead and create a "billboard" box, if you will, on the front page. If it catches on and becomes overwhelming, then I could move them back into a forum. Any thoughts?
