This is really great stuff and I look forward to working with Jekyll rather
than what we have.

I wanted to bump the thread to check on status and timelines, as I'm
working on a new section of the site (/stream) and don't want to have to do
the work twice.

> Hi,
> The CentOS website redesign effort is going on and there is already
> some code to evaluate at:
> https://github.com/areguera/centos-jekyll-sites/tree/staging
> The redesign uses jekyll static site generator, Montserrat typography
> and the artistic motif we used in CentOS distributions, to highlight
> the visual connection among these elements. The navigation header and
> footer changed to use a dark blue background consistent with CentOS
> artistic motif. On header the logo and link elements were moved from
> left to center with respective spaces so the left side of the logo and
> the left side of the content look aligned on left. On footer, links to
> CentOS About and CentOS Community were displayed along The CentOS
> Project description.
> The content is based on what we have now in www.centos.org. I tried to
> replicate it but there are content still missing (on purpose to see how
> the "404 Not found page" looks like ;). The written information may
> need some consistency. For example on page titles, sometimes we write
> "The CentOS ...", others just "CentOS ...", and others no "CentOS" word
> at all.
> The download links are missing on purpose so to bring debate about the
> way to go here. In the proposed code, we use two cards, one for CentOS
> Linux and other for CentOS Stream. Each card has tabs inside to
> organize download information about major releases of each
> distribution. This organization uses a table to relate architectures,
> packages, release notes, documentation and end-of-life. These cards are
> reused both in the home page and the download page, so we only need to
> change them in a single place (e.g.,
> https://github.com/areguera/centos-jekyll-sites/blob/staging/_includes/centos-download-cards.html
> ).
> What's your impressions so far? You are welcome to share your comments,
> suggestions, and code/design contributions.
> Thanks,
