Just as a friendly reminder, this is the *development* list. Not the re-hash-heated-arguments-held-dozens-of-places-elsewhere list. ;) When you send a mail to this list, it goes to *thousands* of our project's busiest and hardest working people. Please keep mails on-topic.

Speaking of on-topic, there's a post which explains the established process for suggesting improvements to the Drupal.org redesign on the front page right now: http://drupal.org/node/940862 There you can find next actionable steps for your suggestions. Thanks for QAing.

The only downside that I can see is that no one really "wins" and we don't have "one phrase." But isn't that the point of what we're trying to accomplish?

The bug in the redesign tracker was closed because the new slogan had "already been implemented" (cunning!).
