Actually the newbie guide was originally intended to be a moria document
only but the new web site was coming so slowly I thought that it would be
foolish not to make it available sooner.  My main problem with moving the
newbie guide right now is that the links in that document link to many
many areas in the old web site which  haven't been moved over to the new
site.  Now I could move the newb guide over to moria but it would lots of
broken links and it would leave me to maintain two seperate versions of
the document.

This also leads me into other issues that I've been brewing over for the
new site.  Would it be worthwhile to setup an infra meeting to get
everyone pulling in the same direction?  If so I have a few items that I'd
like to discuss about the new site and it's layout.
