Subject Re: Inspiration // News blogs powered with Roller

@Shelan : We use twitter bootstrap to have a modern look and feel. Thanks
for your work about mobile theme. It was an option to migrate to 5 if the
customer chose two design rather than responsive. Finally it is easier to
design Bootstrap than JqMobile.

@Glen : No problem to add references to these blogs. I didn't see the jira
but it is easier for me too to deliver a patch.
I am right with the three problem and I think you are right to label this
functionnality as experimental.

Thanks to everyone !
