I don't think we should spend time on fixing the commit messages before
merging. I think we can merge your design-1.0 branch as-is, to keep the
ball rolling (the design looks good to me and seems to work).

For the future, you can edit your previous commits by using Git's
interactive rebasing:


This is also useful for collapsing several commits into one (e.g. you
make a mistake and fix it in a new commit, and want to include the fix
in the first commit) and reordering them. I use this basically all the time.

Before using rebase, it's a good idea to know the `git reflog show
BRANCHNAME' command, that together with `git reset --hard` allows you to
undo whatever git operations you did.


Some further suggestions on the design:

- Add a top-bar for navigating between scipy.org, numpy.scipy.org,
  docs.scipy.org and scipy-central.org

- Maybe there's room for the scipy-central logo?
