Thank you.

That's fine. The content now is an older presentation, but with updated
style and logos. But we work in open repos anyway.

Thanks. I've already seen what was linked from the website and couple of
other things including the backgrounds (thanks to Helena). But I kept the
current presentation simple. One reason being time. The other reason is
that simpler (no) background fits more with slides our group creates, so I
wanted be on brand, but at the same time very simple.

Anyway, I'm excited about the new branding and I'm willing to contribute to
the templates. Time line is unclear, but I'll be in touch.

I encountered couple of issues with the new branding and I'll post them to
this mailing list (if that's all right).

A separate repository for each software/technology may be more practical
for forking and downloading, but perhaps little harder for updating (on the
other hand, you will always see how old the specific template is).
