Well, we could look for a generic css template standard compatible,
and then work over it until we get the CentOS desired look. If
possible over a public svn too :)

There are lots of things to do on modern-CentOS yet, more
standardization, clean code, test other browsers different from
firefox, etc. Put it under a public control version would help to get
more people involved on this.

Don't know how much such a generic CentOS Theme would adapt into this.
Note that the mantis css declaration are specifics to mantis html
output markup, the same way as wiki css declarations are specifics to
the wiki html output markup. It seems that, because applications use
different classes id for (sometimes) the same html tags, they use
specific css declarations, one apart from each other.

Maybe we could get a common.css (modern-CentOS's maybe) file and
import it after the line that defines the defult.css file in mantis
application. If so, we need to polish that common.css file to make
things clean and do not brake things among sites look. It needs to be
completely generic for both (or more) sites.

Just some thoughts,

Thank you for taking the time KB.
