Subject Re: Website
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 20:35:49 GMT
Hey All,

So here is my first take at the website. I just created a (mobile friendly)
simple shell site to fill with content (while getting inspired from such
sites as cordova.io), until something more awesome can (possibly) be done
up.

I was hoping to get feedback (and agreement) on it before committing it to
the "site" folder in our SVN (and continuing to get Infra to setup a sync
to "http://incubator.apache.org/ripple". I believe I have gotten most of
the content correct..

You can view it here: http://brentlintner.github.com/ripple-asf-site

Thoughts?
