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.
