Restructuring DTN

In the last couple hours while reviewing DTN, I independently came to a 
similar conclusion ... that the sidebar as currently constructed is 
largely irrelevant to the addon developer, and relevant items not easily 
found (you must scroll to the bottom).  Perhaps there should even be 
more sidebar items for addon developers than the three listed? For 
example where are the addon forums listed?

Not sure how to solve that problem. Can the sidebar automatically be 
positioned to the addons section if one is reading an addon section or 
just clicked on one like ?
