Ok. Then I need to do some changes to how these are pulled in.

On the first look, the Garage news feed looks OK, so we should be able
to aggregate it to the site.

I'll try it on my devel box first and then commit the needed style changes.

The numbers are generated from the accounts and "per project groups"
synchronized the Midgard from Garage.

We have to investigate at some point why the numbers differ from Garage.
Probably Gforge doesn't raise notifications when projects are deleted or

Another possibility is that we also count in the "non-public" projects
while Garage possibly doesn't.

I'll make it editable by editing the front page article.

Do you want to make it structurized (project name, image and text in
separate fields) or just one big blob of HTML?

The original design was dynamic. I'm kind of in favor of keeping it that
way, and making the front page areas slightly more flexible.

But final say is of course with you guys :-)
