yuck -- too much space on login matters -- and that repeated 
twice --- I would use much less (just login) and put the new 
acct and lost password stuff down a level as they in no way 
need to be repeated over and over again, taking up space.

The color scheming of the hard 'primary red' is jarring, and 
the top of page 'above the fold' cluttered wwith five rows of 
lines of nav related tabs before the 'breadcrumb' row

The 'searchbox' up top of every page is overkill, and at best 
I would have a 'search' subpage, or put it at the bottom

The choice and ordering on the top level tabs would not match 
my preferences, and I think do not match the projects' needs

The presence of the wiki edits row up top on what are in the 
most immutable pages is again a mis-application of 'top of the 
page' space

It just looks cluttered to me for no clear reason
