I think that Mo noted somewhere in the mockups that there's a missing
element, which is the route for a person who is looking to update
their existing Fedora system.  It might be just a single page that's
in order, and the flow itself is mostly there already.

The websites team, Hiemanshu and Sijis in particular, have been
working on these pages.  To test them, here's what you need to do:

$ su -c 'yum groupinstall "Web Server"'
$ su -c 'yum install git gettext python-genshi babel'
$ git clone git://    # ~37 MB
$ cd fedora-web/
$ make 
$ make test

Then point your web browser at http://localhost:5000/ to see results.
The folks on the Websites team could use some help in getting the HTML
and CSS done to support the mockup designs.  I've advertised on some
social networking feeds -- assistance would be appreciated!
