I agree. While I'd be reluctant to make it the front page, it would seem a
sensible choice for the "getting help with sugar" link on the mainpage.

Heh. I think we want to first "convert" our users to the idea that Sugar is
something worth using/deploying, and then to "lure them in" to community
participation. We have to keeep in mind we're serving a variety of
audiences; most [citation needed] people in school administration don't have
the time / bandwidth to join a mailing list to find out more. Rather the
"implementation people" in IT and teachers in the classroom  are those who
would provide the most value to the community, and they will probably
(subject to verification, see below) still be able to find their way.

Seems sensible. We can even conduct some budget usability
testing<http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20030602.html>once we get to the
later stages. There are plenty of people who fit in those
groups around my school :)
