    Great example of the benefits of international cooperation on the 'little' things as well as on high profile policies. Having worked for both the NZ and UK governments this is a really good move - NZ govt sites are currently in a similar place to where UK govt sites were pre-GOV.UK (i.e., of variable quality, uncoordinated/duplicative, difficult to search). Moving to a single site using a tried-and-tested design/methodology is a good step forward.

    What's the best place to start at if I want use Gov.uk's front-end code as well. I know about https://github.com/alphagov but there are so many projects on it I honestly don't know where to start.

    I'm even more interested in the back-end stuff. How do you manage all the content? I found out about https://www.gov.uk/performance/dashboard and https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/user-centered-design/writing-government-services.html and https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/user-centered-design/resources/writing-for-transactions.html
    But do you have information on your editorial process and tools?
