Me too!

There are also a few issues on the tablets which need to be looked at.

I'd say we're close, but need a few weeks of work still (devil is in the
details). It would also be nice to do all templates from talk, wiki,
garage, mailinglists, search at the same time.

Once we fix all issues on all supported browsers for the main page, that
code can be used for the template on all other services. Most templates
should be pretty straightforward.

Going live with a broken site is certainly not what we did all this work
for :)
