Good to know that off-site won't mean off-work.  ;) Now I would envy you
if it wouldn't be because I will start soon my off-site holidays.  :)

The first bottleneck for a maemo.org face lift is a lack of a very basic
plan (what is wrong with the current layout and what are the proposals
to fix it) and lack of mockups to agree upon before touching Midgard or
a CSS style.

Everybody interested in plans: please go to
https://wiki.maemo.org/Talk:Task:Improving_maemo.org and write down your

Everybody interested in mockups: follow the feedback in the page above
and go ahead. Please use the wiki to upload your proposals.

If we have a plan and an agreed mockup by the end of sprint4
(2008/09/02) then we will be able to commit to implement all this in
real code and graphics for the sprint5 (deadline for a new and tested
layout would be ideally 2008/09/16, right before the beginning of
http://www.osimworld.com ).

The latest that should happen is to enter OSiM and the maemo Summit with
a buggy maemo.org layout implemented looking nice in the screenshots but
giving trouble to e.g. Explorer and Mac users + some ugly details in the
Maemo browser. It would not be the first time...
