OK, we can move the Business Models link to the about page.

[new task]:[davi]: move the below descriptions to the "Post offer" page
                   and delete the FS* menu entries.

  Job offers:
    Get in contact with some of the best available Free Software
    experts and their companies. Solve your problems today with
    the best system administrators, developers, testers,
    documentalists, etc.

  FS pledges
    A pledge is a promise somebody has made to donate something, for
    example two cents, to get some task done.

    If you like some of the ideas listed in the pledge groups below,
    you can join to by contributing your two cents to help get it
    converted into an actual job offer. You can even edit it to add
    your ideas or corrections.

    If you would like carry out some of the tasks below in exchange
    for the reported task money, just open it and click "I accept"
    to try it.

  Looking for volunteers
    If you would like to donate something for fulfilling a task,
    please create it as a FS pledge entry instead of as a looking
    for volunteers one.

Delete the "Account" word from that bar.

The last commits at production has not solved the original problem. I think I 
understand what you mean with the overflow issues, but could you provide a 
screenshot please?

Note that solving the overflow issue and making it easier to navigate are 
different subjects.

I like the idea.

Pending to discuss the details.

Logos in web sites always link to the main site page.  I chose the about page 
to link to because I thought it was the right one to link form the logo.

I think a button combination between the image and the Free Software 
Association text to link to the about page is a very bad idea.  Maybe instead 
we could link to the about page too from the Free Software Association text.

I think you are absolutely right about this one. I will remove it.

That one was needed to control the adaptive width of subsection title. You are 
free to show an alternative which we will sure disscuss.


1) I quickly work out task 9486 and 9485 and delete the unneeded menu entries

    Note: I want to do the above two tasks myself to be sure they are done

2) Nicodemo update his development environment from my last changes and,
3) Nicodemo work out task 9487.

*) Edgar anti-Spam patch.

*) More Nicodemo, Edgar and Davi tasks ...

*) ...

N) Show Savannah and GNU Herds login integration.

All changes have to be compatible with the user-take-a-quick-look to the site 
clicking in all links, without raising any kind of regression, etc.
