Things that I've already started in april.
@team, we spoke about redesigning start.fpo, don't know where we are.
I know where we are.
The current fp.o page is really cluttered, and it has no clear purpose, as
detailed in the wiki page.
If we want to drop the page, we need a permission from the board to do it, but
we were all to lazy to bring this up to the board.
If we want to use it as a what'snew page (similar to what Firefox does after an
update) that will explain what's new in the release, we would need a design (it
needs to be more attractive than a wiki page and well designed), we need
someone to update it every release, we need a permission from the board, and we
need to speak with the Firefox package maintainers to make sure users will only
see this page when they first open firefox after a new installation of Fedora
or an upgrade, and never again until they upgrade to the next Fedora.
The present Board will most likely Okay any redesign you'd like to do.
They'd probably be okay with dropping it as well if you know where you want
the default start page for firefox to be instead.
