I believe the SEUL home page could be improved to help the above
situation. Until I read Roger's post "SEUL: Re: RedHat and KDE (fwd)",
I didn't realize that several things that are on the home page even
existed. Also much of what's on the home page is about SEUL and
perhaps should be acessed from a tag (I don't know if that is what you
call it) labeled "ABOUT SEUL". The reason is that one only reads it
once or twice. Usually when I go to a web site, I want to find some
particular piece of information and I find it helpful if I can click on
something which I hope will take me there.

This is excellent. For almost a year, I have been trying to grasp where
Linux is at. I've just scratched the surface. I've seen various projects in
need of a particular skill. If SEUL could get a handle on this so that people
could come to SEUL to find out where they could do the most good, SEUL
would become known as the place to go. Enough for now.
