How much of that needs doing for relaunch?

I think it's probably going to be useful to write some help content for
where the new site does the same things in a different way.

I think we've got 2 things here:
1) porting the site to drupal without significantly changing things (yes, I
know that the design is significant, but we have to do templates anyway, no
matter what)
2) all the wider improvements, like evolters, integrating leo etc.

What I think we're doing is (1) for 13 Dec - a short, relatively uncomplex
deliverable that doesn't take a *lot* of thinking about. Drupal is enough
of a framework to support many, many options for (2), but that'll take a
*lot* of thought and discussion, which alone would use up the time we have
until the birthday.
