I figured as much - I have an internal account and doing my own job can
be hard :^).
I propose: getfedora.org or similar for users (based around the idea
that there's a much larger audience among people that don't already run
Linux than that do).
Making a mock up is simple and I hereby volunteer to do so, provided
somebody promises to listen to me and host it somewhere should I manage
to convince them.
And fedoraproject.org for developers.
