I think that the idea of the "Have you got Debian 4.0 yet?" question is quite nice, and could be added to the website independant of the theming changes. IMHO, this is the kind of change that we need to improve the content of the website. Have you worked out what would go behind the Yes and No links? A nice next step might be adding that to the front page of wiki.debian.org, and working out all the content that goes behind the links, using pages in the wiki. Putting the news and advisories in the side bar seems to work fairly well, but the dates on the security advisories are fairly important, since they let users know if they are new security issues or old ones. And notice that the last 5 advisories all came out in the same week, which is typical, so only displaying 3 could lead to some being missed. Including a way to subscribe to the advisories (ie, rss feed), and making the header a link to see all of them might help address this. The theme is pretty nice, good colors, although it feels a little bit grey to me. -- see shy jo  Replacing the current spotlight, since this is in concept similar to the spotlights.
