Typo on Trac homepage (http://trac.edgewall.org/)

There is a typo on the Trac homepage (http://trac.edgewall.org/). The page says "Our mission; to help developers…." The semicolon after "mission" should be either a colon or a dash; "our mission" is not a complete sentence.

Please don't ask me to submit a patch, like your friends on IRC did. I have no idea how your source tree is laid out and where the relevant files live. I'm not going to go through all the check out procedures and the processes necessary to create all the necessary accounts. The first day I heard of your project and visited your homepage I noticed this typo. Since I know one of you can correct this single character with much less effort than I could, I am attempting (for a second time) to bring this error to someones attention.

Thanks, and best of luck on your project.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've updated the sentence to read "Our mission is…" since I felt that read a little smoother than just swapping it for a colon, though that would've worked too. I agree submitting a patch on the Wiki page is a little silly for that, but sometimes you have to take suggestions on IRC with a grain of salt. For making sure something is seen by the developers a ticket or MailingList post is the best way since of course we can't watch IRC all day.
