Yup just like that.
Can you write an article on how to import source to the subversion repository please (or just put a link in)?
Also, if possible, could you e-mail me and mattijs the admin password so we can start customising a bit?

We also need to establish some kind of categorisation so we can lock the front page. Suggestions on this structure welcome.

i.e. something like
