Prompted by the email I alighted on http://www.bazaar-vcs.org/ which
redirected to http://bazaar-vcs.org/en/ which displays nicely.   Using
Epiphany on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope with a 1920x1200 screen, the
text fonts for the text are a bit too small to read easily without
leaning into the screen.

The right pointing green arrows at the ends of various lines are either
supposed to be circles and are having their bottoms chopped horizontally
or they are a bit weird.  Opening the image reveals a properly round
image in a square space, so the problem is an artefact of the rendering.
It does look disconcertingly weird.

Flipping along the top menu bar:

The docs and contribute buttons go to pages with one style, the download
extras and help have another style.  So there are three styles of page
here.  I am guessing that over time all the pages will be harmonized so
as to present a single brand style?

Perhaps as a quick way forward on this the docs and contribute pages
could have the colours adjusted so that they use the colours of the
front page?  Also the styling of the docs and contribute could be
harmonized a bit more?

I wonder if the the "The Adaptive Version Control System" should go from
the docs page?

Just a few first impressions.

Overall, good job by everyone involved in evolving the website.
