We should probably be referring back to the mockups Mairin did a while
back and revising where necessary to get them more in line with the
spins.fp.o design and other recently mocked-up designs.
Some changes that I would like to explore to this mockup:
* Revising the footer to match spins.fp.o. I think the spins.fp.o
footer came along after this www.fp.o
mockup was originally
completed. It's far superior, and provides lots of useful
information and a lightweight site map.
* Providing an appropriate element somewhere to drive interested
traffic to Red Hat as our sponsor. The footer contains an element
for this, but I think we can do something more prominent (without
overwhelming any of the other page elements).
* Settle the panda question. :-)
* We need people to provide more content for the rotating stories on
the page. I think there's a neglected ticket for this here:
* Use the fonts on which the Design team ultimately settles. (And by
the way, we should use the special HTTP content magic that allows
Firefox to auto-provide fonts for people who don't have them
This overall design is still sound, do people agree we can start here
rather than from scratch? There may be other things we can revisit in
this mockup, too. The list above might not be complete. But the page
as a whole still seems very much in line with the way that the
fp.o/get-fedora and spins.fp.o pages have evolved. So starting here
means we'd have a pretty unified site until such time as someone wants
to do another redesign.
I forgot to note one other issue worth revisiting:
* The site slogan. Originally Mo and I just cast about for "Free your
computer." As I recall we were both thinking, it might be good not
to have to re-do a website slogan every release. This text is just
a placeholder. It wasn't meant to be a decree for a new slogan.
Given how easy Inkscape makes things, and the fact that our slogans
are required to be short (and thus shouldn't run into formatting
problems), maybe this isn't an issue and we can replace the banner
