Thanks for everyone for comments, the download button was also a
placeholder it's just to show my idea of putting something like that
on the homepage.

It is a svg mockup I could pass it to xhtml+css in a day or so, but I
didn't wanted to do so because I first need to talk with the people in
charge of the web part.

I do agree the search would be better if it is google's web search to the site.

It is possible to create a theme for PmWiki so I think that we could
create a theme to recreate the main website design within the wiki.

Also we can take advantage of the data stored in the wiki's database
so we can take automatically the latest posts and such in the main

than the real thing :)

I love it too, that's why I decided to use the logo created by
sirgazil than the original one, but again this is just a personal
taste and nothing of this is official till the web team decides to use
this or not.
