[openstack-dev] Project Navigator Updates - Feedback Request

I am taking a look at the Cinder page.  All-in-all this looks nice.  
Couple of thoughts/questions:

  * The install guide doesn't go to the guide for Cinder, just to the
    docs.openstack.org website.  Is that intentional?
  * The "Find this service in the Marketplace" goes off to the devbranch
    right now and requires authentication.
  * I like the Most Active contributors section.  Would it be possible
    to get the names in the same format (<First Name> <Last Name>) and
    possibly include the IRC nick?  I am guessing you are getting
    different formats due to the way it is queried.  If you can't fix
    that, at least associating it with the IRC nick would be good.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Looks like a good thing for 
OpenStack to have.
