Why two efforts? The board voted to continue moving forward with the web refresh project. Both Tiffany and Matt have been directed to work on that effort. Let's unify and work together and not break this into competing plans. Larry Conklin

This is in fact very simple to do, but it can be a lot of work because  of the amount of pages that requires clean up and re-categorization. However this is only possible after we have agreed how this structure should be

> Uncategorized categories
> Uncategorized files
> Uncategorized pages
> Uncategorized templates
> Unused categories
> Unused files
> Unused templates
> Orphaned pages
> We will have soon an upcoming meeting to allow everyone provide feedback
