Then all we'd need is a volunteer a bit fluent in webdesign. Someone
around? Sebastian? We'd need a slightly different layout (most probably
colors) which would come down to minor CSS changes, I guess.

I haven't done that myself yet ;) But from the Sphinx docs I get the
impression that we could share one theme for both, the community and the
reference docs and set differences in the respective conf.py files.

Right now, both layout.htmls differ slightly, for instance for the upper
link bar. With a theme we might could turn these differences into
conf.py-settable options and wouldn't have to care for two nearly
identical layout.htmls in two different locations any more.

The only question would be how to share the theme (basically a ZIP file
or a subdir) in the different repository types. Would mercurial support
something similar to svn:external (which is ugly, I know)? Or vice
versa? I am a complete Mercurial-illiterate ;)

Seems it works fine now :) Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
