Subject Re: Clutch blue-green background colour obscures entries
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2011 09:04:37 GMT
Finally the wonderful bootstrap css is destroyed:
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/committer.html

I do not agree to changing the colors of visited links.
The headings now have a different line-height and look pretty ugly
(see "Mailing lists" heading).
Heading were bold before, and I think we should keep them bold.

And looking at this page compared to:
http://code.grobmeier.de/incubator-draft-v2/guides/committer.html
Even the heading color should not be black. It gives everything a
depressing look and feel.

The clutchtable has a class called "colortable", can we format this
class instead of formatting the standard bootstrap classes?

Can we change that again, please?

Thanks,
Christian
