Hi James!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to give you  more feedback on these 
mockups - FUDCon Toronto has now come and left so I have more time. :) 
(I owe you an interview too, I haven't forgotten)

It seems this is no longer available! :(

Would it be possible to repost or even better, to put it up on the 
fedoraproject.org wiki? You could create a new page for it off of the 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Design page under our project list.

Cool, I look forward to seeing more mocks, do you have the time to do 
them? I am hoping we can make this design happen!
