Yeah, I also think we could be a little smarter with the contributor 
focussed content too. Sure, f22 is branched -- that is good info for 
contributors. But we can also give a little background on what this 
actaully means, for the users that are not yet contributors :)

Dunno, maybe we just try not having categories -- only tags. A lot of 
our readers are coming in to specific posts anyway at the moment, so 
having categories wont really change much, TBH.
