Thanks for the feedback Colin.

1. I have filed a Jira for the 404 page an redirects (
http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-5565,
http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-5566)

2. Do you have any URLs / pages of old Fluid Project website pages that you
know should be reproduced? We can crawl through the wiki, but it helps to
know which pages are priority.

3. Moving Infusion above the fold would be tricky because this would push
the 3 coloured project boxes down below the fold, or we would have to
consider using a sidebar. We have some new design minds at the IDRC, so
maybe we can figure something out. A separate page for Infusion may make
sense since it's a "product". What do others think?

- Jon.
