The tables use the same CSS class as the tables at
https://www.debian.org/ports/. I used it for consistency across the pages.
If the tables should be different, this change should be applied across the
whole website. I am happy to implement anything where there is consensus on
the debian-www mailing list, but the discussion would have to happen there.

For these descriptions, these should be useful to users as well as
developers. I'm not happy with them as they currently are. Note that these
have already been translated and any changes will create work for the
translators as they will need new translations. I would like it if there is
consistency across them, but unless I can find time, I would need someone
else to propose the changes to make. I'm not even sure the descriptions I've
put are even accurate, as they were gathered from a number of sources. I
don't know if we do a blends census but that might also be a good idea to
see what is happening with each blend.

If we have changes that are good and will be good for an extended time, then
I'm happy to apply them.

I would not want to display logos for every blend, although I would be happy
to have a featured blends section which showed more detail about selected
blends including logos.
