  1. The website is unacceptably ugly. (Sorry).
    It would be nice to work with design team and apply standard fedora css.

    • Susmit, your comment doesn’t really add anything new to the conversation from the meeting minutes. Feel free to get involved. I would love to get some help. A ticket has already been filed with the design team long back.

  2. True, it does not add anything. Just an observation. There is no way I can participate in the face to face meetings. Also, the online meeting time does not work for me.

    That said, please point me to an open list of items that need help, I don’t see such a list on the wiki.

    • The meeting minutes already shows you the same observation. There is no requirement to participate in any meetings to help out on tasks really. It’s all there in the meeting minutes posted regularly. Merely a list of tasks won’t really be helpful unless you follow the details and engage everyone involved but here you go
