Once we get the upgrade to 4.7 out of the way I think we should look  
at issues like this, of how we use this framework, we haven't really  
explored the flexibility that moving to Drupal has afforded us.

Customising the UI strings and help text so they're not so  
"drupalish" is one of these options  (so far I think we're running  
with defaults), but I know for a fact there's a *lot* more work that  
could be done with weo so it's not just the place where articles are  
published, but is used as a tool for the community itself.

Hell, you only have to look at http://groups.drupal.org to see how  
you can use the organic groups module to quickly assemble special  
interest groups around a certain target to see what can be done.

(and yes, that was me throwing my hat in the ring... *if* the upgrade  
is sorted and we get some sort of "what we want to happen in the next  
X months" outline agreed on)
