Feel free to improve. These are the original colors from the logo. Making
them a little softer should work.

But the news-items will move to a sidepane anyway, when we have a theme.
The mail was more about the idea of limiting the number of links on the
front page.

It depends on how you look at it. It could be as part of the "Contribute

I guess an About CentOS subsection would be useful, if there's not too
much overlap with other subsections. What information would it link to ?
