Correct on both counts.  There are threads going on in
fedora-advisory-board concerning redesign of the web pages, and I've
spent a substantial amount of time over the last weeks talking to
people on the Board, Design, and Websites teams about how we can
improve the appearance of the website, and focus the message it sends
about Fedora.

I would suggest this is really off-topic for this list.  If we want
this list to be a hospitable place for developers to discuss code,
features, and packaging, we need to get conversations to the places
they can be most effective.
