It might be a good idea to come up with a generic mechanism to  
provide 'Relavant links' or 'Context-sensitive information' on  

The obvious solution would be using blocks.  We have 'information  
blocks' on http://drupal.org/cvs and handbook pages already.

So, +1 but take a moment or two to come up with a generic solution  
that can be standardized for different pages or sections of drupal.org.
