Completely forgot to check the To: field, so I'm sending this again. :(

I know this is probably not the proper place, but it would be easier to track this stuff web-wise if make.wordpress.org gets some better organization, visibility, etc. It would help if front of make.wordpress.org had links to those discussion oriented sub-sites.

Even better if make.wordpress.org could get some of the infrastructure that wpdevel.wordpress.com gets from being on the wordpress.com system. The email subscription options are very helpful to the time-starved. 

I know, I know, I could hunt out and pull some RSS feeds to keep informed, but it would help if those make.wordpress.org sites were actually listed somewhere at least slightly visible.

The W3C has asked us to provide feedback, but most of us don't have the time or knowledge to be able to do that effectively.
