Sure, I'll do that.

I'd like to see just one site and I'm hoping that what's currently at
go-compiz.org can become this site. I'll make compiz.org and
go-compiz.org point to this same site.

I would very much like to see some people help out with that. Anyone
interested should contact me.

I'd like to move it to the official site if Ben is OK with that. And he
can of course keep maintaining the forums at the official site if he
wants to do that.
