That sounds like some great ideas ! :)

WRT "theme" refresh, I'd say that a common theme across all the web
UIs/apps we have would be good, but, while being done for the "15
years", it shouldn't really in itself have that "15 years" string really
in the design.
It would rather need a specific logo maybe on the website, but the theme
should be still working after 2019, otherwise we'd end up with something
like the "new design" theme that we used everywhere (like even on the
roll-up for Fosdem) but for several years :-)

Some Web UIs that we can refresh (or even do as nothing applied so far
for some) :
- www.centos.org
- wiki.centos.org
- mailman (lists.centos.org)
- common headers for httpd servers serving content
(mirror,cloud,vault,buildlogs,people, etc)
- forums (www.centos.org/forums and fr.centos.org but I'd like to unify
soon that somewhere)
- ipsilon/idp (id.centos.org)
- blog (blog.centos.org)
- koji/cbs (cbs.centos.org)
- mantis (bugs.centos.org)
- docs (docs.centos.org)

And probably others
