Great! For those interested in web development, there are heaps of areas of 
various degrees of difficulty that needs some web-design-love. Thomas Canniot 
posted started a thread some time ago called 'Improving Transifex ergonomics' 
with lots of ideas for improvement:

http://www.google.com/search?q=Improving+Transifex+ergonomics

Some other ideas from the top of my head:
http://translate.fedoraproject.org/module/anaconda

1) Notice how the menu and top banner takes up a lot of the screen 
real-estate, leaving little space for the main information for the page
2) The middle of the page contains module-meta data, and I have to scroll down 
to see the statistics. It would be nice if I could click a button to minimize 
(or 'collapse') this information, and then below simply have a group of tabs, 
one tab for each branch (trunk, rhel5-branch, ...), with some javascript 
magic to switch between the tabs. 

Now, contributing to open source development is very much self-motivated, but 
we will try to help people getting started and getting their head around 
things when needed. Damned Lies templates are not easy to get your head 
around, so if you rather want to start from scratch or from a "save as HTML" 
version of a page, we welcome these submissions and will as developers try 
our best to integrate good ideas.

Information on how to retrieve the source-code (including html templates) for 
transifex can be found on the following locations:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/Tools/DamnedLiesPlans (see the Pointers 
section)

cheers,
