man, that was so strong, I thought I've hit some wrong link :)

if you can define them in one place, like CSS, that's true, otherwise 
it's pain to maintain.

Though I prefer mild colours, not shouting ones. I use the site all the 
time, and I don't need to be shouted at. May be we want a splash page 
just for some entrance page, which those who use the site daily don't 
have to see. I like the colours at use.perl.org and even more the ones 
used by http://freshmeat.net/.

cvs where? it has to stay at perl.apache.org I believe.

Also what components framework have you used, is it Mason? Is it a 
static page or dynamic?

Otherwise it's good to have someone to push for a change, I think I'll 
help with the content once we figure out the skeleton.

But it'd be nice to give some good web-designer do some brushing, no 
offense Nat :) We can show it on the modperl list and ask for a better 
look and feel from those who know how.
