I prefer Django (nginx+fcgi) myself, but we use Apache + PHP for aMule.

I received the data from emerald and I'll have a look at it. Please keep poking me if I don't show results or I'll priorize other things...;)

I think there's something like gettext for php around. If you could send me the data, I could fiddle a bit to get it working.

I'll send you the data, but just creating a proof-of-concept with one string translated by gettext (PHP on Apache) would already be a big help.
IIRC, it was a bit problematic to change the language on run-time, but it's probably possible.

On a side note: I've decided to create a live-demo + repository for the new look for aMule.org. This way everybody interested has less problems contributing and testing of new features is easier.

I guess SVN is the way to go, although I'm increasingly fond of mercurial (and use it for private projects) and have heard mainly good things about git.

It's your choice, unless you want to host it on amule.org.

I'd rather keep the CUTE new rabbit (and the rabbit has always been our logo).
And the penguin on the download page looks poor in comparison with the other icons.

Some random thoughts after viewing demo.

Main page:
* White rabbit has been chosen as project logo - am I recall correctly?
* Replacing logo with screenshots on mouse-over is both annoying AND confusing.
* Chung of text after "what is amule" is too long and mostly irrelevant. History facts like "was forked from ..." doesn't belong here. Feature list too.

Downloads section
* Linux logo is wrong/bad/confusing/never-seen-this before. What happened to Tux?

Contribute page
* XCode icon is not public domain.

No it is not. Pleas put official Tux back - you didn't reinvent Windows logo either, didn't you?

Yep, I was thinking that too, now that you mention it.

No guesses?

Not only that XCode icon is not public domain, you're using it in confusing way. This icon is very OSX-specific, and not general-purpose symbol of "coding/programming".

Thanks for all the feedback. I'll incooperated changes asap soon™. And of course big thanks to emerald for giving us this beautiful design.

btw: Using the windows logo would be fair use (but ianal). I didn't know this was the Xcode logo, so it'll be of course removed.

Agree. It's OK to use official icon to indicate platform.
