So: how much better does the site header for the LibO Extensions site look than the site header for the Templates site? Answer: a lot better.

I must have too much time on my hands, as I did a mock up of a revised Templates header:

For comparison, here is the Extensions banner:

And this is the current Templates banner:

To see it in context, compare the templates mockup with the current extensions page.

Does anyone know the admins at those sites? Does anybody care? ;) FWIW!

all positive comments - Can someone give @David a hand on how to forward his designs to the people in charge?

@ROSt52, the links above by @manj_k are exactly that :-)

Thanks, all, for the encouragement! I have contacted the maintainer of the Extensions- and Templates-Site (on this fairly minor matter :) and I'll update here as @oweng suggests if there is any action resulting.

@owieng - thanks for the hint about the links. @David - thanks for your engagement.

They liked it (also here). :) Big thank you to Andreas Mantke from TDF who maintains that site and was encouraging about this small change -- as also were those in the comment thread on the original question. It's a tiny "contribution", but a good feeling to be part of this open-source community.

For any interested, the final versions of PNG and SVG are available on the Document Foundation wiki.
