This is one big concern I have - specifically, what's the timeframe for
developing and deploying the new fedora style, and how will that mesh
with the planned schedule of Amber?  The goal for amber is to release
by F10's release date (Currently October 28).

Also, a technical detail is that amber-specific CSS should probably live
in a different file than the main fedora CSS.  But that should be
fairly easy to accomplish when the design is more complete.

Er, actually, 'Fedora Applications' is the intended name.

I'll abstain.  I can see positives and negatives for both options.  My
current feeling is to call the instance of the application for Fedora
'Fedora Applications', because it matches the naming/branding scheme of
several other pieces, and it's an easy, descriptive name.  'Amber'
would remain the name of the project and software running the web
