Hello All-
   I have a couple minor editorial comments/suggestions for http://plugins.qgis.org that I'd like to share. Apologies in advance if I'm sending my comments to the wrong list. There's no webmaster identified on the site so I don't know where to go. 

I went to the plugins.qgis.org site for the first time today and at first glance, I wasn't sure what I was looking at. The title/logo says "Quantum GIS" and the landing page says "Welcome to the new QGIS Web Application". Its a little confusing until you start reading the content. Here are a couple, really minor suggestions to make the site more readable:

1. I believe the title next to the QGIS logo at the top of the page should be consistent throughout the plugins.qgis.org site. It should read "Quantum GIS Plugin Repository" or something 
similar. Otherwise its a little jarring as you move from page to page 
and its not always clear that your still on the plugin site (e.g. 
Snippits and User Map).

2. Include a header for each individual section (like you have on the landing page and the plugins page). 

3. I believe the title on the landing page should be a little more descriptive like "Welcome to the QGIS Plugin Repository"

4. I suggest a minor reorganization of the content on the landing page. I suggest 3 simple sections: 
   - Introduction (e.g. what are plugins)

   - How to Create/Upload a Plugin
   - How to File a Bug Report
   - Developer Resources

Respectfully Yours,
