I'm in two minds on this one.
The project is new and we want to attract as many contributions as
possible but at some point it makes sense to move this off the front page.
(I've always disliked how some Wiki sites are totally in your face about
editing/contributing which makes the site unpleasant to just use).
Is it already time to move it off the front page?
Would a prominant link to a seperate page be enough? (probably).

I am definately warming up to the new logo and as I said I dont mind
the style changes. I'm inclined to agree with Jonadab that changin the
logo colours from what was submitted just doesn't work as well.
