And mine - also that they be easily updateable from some kind of script
- in particular so that the issues list can be kept up-to-date. I have
tools that add links into the email archive for each issue, so can often
get several revisions a day (for the hyper-active bpel tc). At present
we cope with this using a separately-hosted "working copy" (ftp upload
from perl script) and upload (using the normal web interface) to the TC
pages once a week or so.

Also concur on the other points made - the absence of a tc->public back
link I find irritating too. 

Having different URLs for a publically-available document accessed
publically and accessed as a member complicates things sometimes.
