This was something I put in because I don't know enough about the 
current site and, if I had the time to pick this up I would discuss it 
with the person who hosts the site. There is obviously a reason that the 
debian branding is currently present so I wouldn't want to presume it 
can simply be removed.

At no point in the Launchpad bug do I suggest that this is a Canonical 
site. We are happily using the current site for the screenshots in the 
Software Centre. It would be great if the site itself were given some 
design assistance. Richard Lee, on my team, has been looking at the 
implications of simply applying available css as a first pass.

Separately, I think it would be enormously beneficial to the project and 
the apps available on the platform if we could encourage more 
screenshots - which is why I suggested a campaign of some sort - but, if 
we are looking at the site to apply visual updates this might be a good 
opportunity to review the upload user experience and see if there are 
any improvements to be made.
