[IPFire Artwork] Website

Regarding the updated content: I am going to sit down with Daniel as soon as we
can. It's Easter now, so maybe we get something done this weekend or the week
after.

I mainly want to focus on the texts and working. Maybe make them a little bit
shorter and more to the point, but I generally do not plan to change anything
that is big enough to change the layout, too. If we do need some changes I won't
hesitate to ask, but it is all rather minor stuff that I do have in mind so far.

Regarding the bug tracker:

The category exists already under "Infrastructure".

I created a new umbrella bug which should be used to make other bugs depend on
it. That allows us to always have a list of things that need to be dealt with at
a glance:

  https://bugzilla.ipfire.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11314

Just create new reports in the same category and type in 11314 into the "Depends
on" field.

Bugzilla seems a big ugly and scary in the beginning but it is really powerful
:) So give it a chance.

Best,
-Michael
