I have to agree here that this sucks. I have been looking at doing
something about this for a while. I have looked at making patches that
woud fix up Wine HQ, AppDB and Bugzilla but I am lost with changing
the wiki. The change I propose would add links for the four sites that
we have to each site. IE:

Wine HQ menu
  Main Site Home
  AppDB Home
  Bugzilla Home
  Wiki Home.

I am still working on the upgrade to 2.20 for bugzilla and I think I
am close to having it finished but I do not want to have a repeat of
the last upgrade, so I am a little gun shy. Once that is in I can make
it a priority to get those changes in.

Also as I have said I have a lot of problems changing the wiki. Maybe
Dimi could give me some pointers. (please).
