What I know is that Julian is trying to hire someone (or more than
one) in the London area to help revamp the look and feel of the
websites. Right now the plans are very ephemeral but it is a goal for
this year.

Before then, hopefully before Jaunty, I will port the existing theme
to Drupal 6 and use the typography layout used on shipit and
help.ubuntu.com/community. I think some people have already done some
work along these lines so I will try to use their work if I can.
