prediction - nothing will happen because ppl are comfortable with what 
is already there.

Perhaps a revamped clug site is a solution in search of a problem, maybe 
it might open pathways to ppl who don't know about clug/linux and/or 
dont contribute to the current structure.

One is known and possibly quantifiable, the other not.

where will the brave and fearless admins takes us ?
