Hey Maurice,

thanks again for moving this forward.

This looks good.

One comment about my first impression: Isn't it a bit dark when the background
isn't white? I don't find it bad or anything, just unexpected.

No, I think that is all.

But I would suggest to remove the new article on the download page. That makes
it very long to scroll and nobody is looking for that content there anyways. We
should rather have a link to the news article and that keeps the page cleaner
and we can make it serve only one purpose: Downloading the right file.

Yes, the code that generates the HTML out of the markup just generates one
version. However, this is quite confusing with headline sizes and so on now. It
doesn't fit too well at the moment.

We can get rid of downloads.ipfire.org. The initial purpose of that was to have
some sort of an archive with all historic downloads, but that can as well be
realised on the main page.

I think blog.ipfire.org should be an extra subdomain so people see what
something is about only by looking at the URL.

Is there a reason that I have missed why this should all be merged together?
