Replying to myself here.  I suspect these spins pages will be similarly
controlled to the rest of our websites infrastructure.  We build most
sites from the fedora-web repo.  I'm sure long term this will change, it's
possible short term it will change as well.

The basics are listed here:


This allows for a good amount of control, allows your pages to be
completely translated, etc.  As I understand it people in each sig will
have the ability to edit and alter their pages on their own following the
same requirements as the fedoraproject.org site (of which the important
ones are look and feel and the string freeze deadline for the

The websites team will probably also be editing the spins pages to correct
formatting issues, browser compatibility issues, fixing malformed or
inefficient images / screenshots and that type of thing.  I'm sure they'll
help with anything else that is requested.

This could all change if we find a better way of doing things while
converting the mockups to code, but I suspect we'll end up with something
very similar to how fedoraproject.org is presently built.
