I'd vote not to have the donation bubble in the sidebar, because it
pushes important links further down. As it stands, the links to the
mailing lists are below the initial view on my monitor (19").

How about the navbar link, and a mention somewhere on the homepage?

As an aside, I'd like to move 'Wiki' from the navbar to the sidebar.
The links in the navbar implicitly promise that you'll still see the
navbar after clicking on them - kind of like tabs. Putting the wiki
there breaks that.
