Overall it's a pretty good theme. I have a few critiques, though:

1. The content font size should go up at least one more pixel. The smaller
it is, the easier it is to skim or skip.
2. The black text color should be no lighter than #444444 (it's currently
#656565). Anything less than #444444 is just being mean to readers.
3. I'd like to see some other colors than blue and gray. It looks too
monotonous as is. (One of the best parts of Arquillian.org is the purple
and green! Don't fear color!!)


p.s. Per the color point, here are some examples that pop:

- http://emberjs.com
- http://pedestal.io/

> http://static.jboss.org/theme/js/libs/bootstrap-community/
> This ensures that the L&F for all projects using the jboss.org domain has

> Full instructions for use can be found in the README.md<https://github.com/jbossorg/bootstrap-community/blob/> file

> If you'd like to report issues with the theme please use the '
> www.jboss.org (Awestruct)' component of the
> http://issues.jboss.org/browse/ORG project.
