The home is evolving fast, cool! Let's keep the sprint today here in the
list, after the release we can go back to bug/feature reporting.

In fact the Announcements block lists all the news written by us maemo
core team. In other words, all the news listed now at
http://test.maemo.org/news/ (5 most recent items).

The News block lists the garage news produced by the community:
http://garage.maemo.org/news/ (also 5 most recent items).

Currently garage says Hosted Projects: 215 - Registered Users: 1,866.
Ideally the numkbers in the home would be updated accordingly, in the
meantime they can be static but let's just make sure we don't oversize
the numbers.  :)

The featured project should be linked to the homepage of the project. In
the case of Carman is http://carman.garage.maemo.org/ . This block is
static today (?) but needs to be dynamic. Once we have released the site
just tell me where should I upload graphics and texts of new featured

And now I'm going to talk about religion.  ;)  Should the frontpage have
static or dynamic width? I personally don't care much, perhapsd you have
stronger feelings. The current combination is a bit odd, though, since
the internal blocks have static width (and are aligned left and right,
respectively) but the layout is flexible. The result looks good in the
tablets but bad in most desktop monitors and pretty bad if you have a
wide screen. 

An easy fix could be to have the internal blocks tied together and
centered, leaving the header as it is now.
