First of, thanks to everyone who's been involved with this! It looks 
promissing so far and i remain optimistic that we will be able to have it 
ready before 16.10 release!

Good, i thought i was overdue that date. This sounds realistic :)

Yes this is very important! For the record, Geirdal seems too busy, but we 
have backup material :)

looks good, though, i would suggest leaving creds to knome for the theme as 
is, but link to a textfile containing credits for the rest of the material 
instead of potentially having a miles long footer-text with zillions of

I would say a FAQ..(could be contained in Support maybe?) but i'm not too 
sure about what the FAQs are, except for the security disclaimer we 
discussed earlier this summer and perhaps some reccurent PAVU with JACK 
questions, the 'can i use US to create commercial work' etc... we could 
probably fill it up along peu à peu..

looks correct to me. on desktop, the gap between the first container and 
the feature tour is quite big and i fear the FT might go unnoticed. Could 
we either make the gap smaller or have a button in the first container or 
in the menu with an anchor link that 'scrolls' down to the FT?

looks ok, but i would like to try again on a desktop (reviewing from my 
phone can't test magnet links)

You guys made a great job here, eylul and krytarik \o/ its friendly and 
professional. i would like to add links to scribus wiki and inkscape forum. 
I'll provide you that next week unless you get there before ;)

Same as support, my 8 thumbs up for the text! i hear the ubuntu facebook 
group is helpfull, perhaps put a link to that for those affraid of IRC? ( 
yes, that came from me :D )

looks good to me, perhaps ttoine can chip in here? i'll poke him if he 
doesn't see this mail. :)

i think i need to file a RT ticket for that, will take care of it next 
week... shouldn't be a problem (fingers crossed, touching wood)
