[TYPO3] typo3.org

I hate to "me too" on a list, but "me too"...

Having lurked for months and never introduced myself, I do some Typo3 
consulting in Columbus, Ohio (mostly for non-profits). I love Typo3, and 
  advocate it as a communications platform every chance I can. I am very 
happy to see the momentum towards 4.0, including the new "typo3.org" site.

That being said, I've had a difficult time using the new site in its 
current state. I've been able to find some of the documents I need, but 
I'm mostly stuck in the interim. I fortunately have local copies of many 
documents, but I'm hindered in my ability to research candidate 
extensions. This comes at a time when I'm trying to move forward for 
clients. If others new to Typo3 are having the same experience, I'm 
concerned that they will move on to what will seem like a 
better-supported  CMS platform (we all know Typo3 has fantastic 
community support, as we used the old typo3.org).

The new typo3.org looks great, but at the cost of breaking the existing 
newsgroups and Google links, it isn't ready for prime time yet (sorry to 
say so).

Seconding the motion for the old typo3.org, even if only for a short time.

Most grateful to the Typo3 community,
John Kallies
