Thinking the main page should have two status bars, Geoserver and Validation (the two links ...), the status should remain the same within geoserver configuration, and Plugin, Test and TestSuites should be displayed for the validation side.
Please see org.vfny.geoserver.global.ApplicationState to get you display data.

<p>we have different status.jsp pages for:
app/admin: wfs and wms status bars (namespace based)
config/data: datastore based</p>
