I made a mockup  which has the same content as the current Start

put together a working prototype . As you can see we added two RSS
feeds to the page with announcements and Fedora Planet posts.
Looking back I don't think I announced any of this on the Websites or
Design Team mailing lists, which wasn't smart. After all, if it's not on
the list, it didn't happen. ;)
That's so true... :)
- I think the Board has talked before about changing the content and
function of start.fpo, but I can't remember what the consensus was. This
is why I kept the current content and only worked on the appearance
(just like you did). I think that's the best way to go for now. We can
always change it in the future.
IIRC, there was no consensus reached.
An important amount of people have concerns about us relying
on/promoting a proprietary service. There are also voices saying some
other projects receive money from Google for something like this. And
other voices pointing to the little value of having a Google search when
the default browser (Firefox) has the search box inside its UI.
