Some problems I've found regarding the website:

1) Browsing to https://softwarecollections.org/ results in HTTP 400 "Bad
Request" error.

2) Every page contains the following text:  "You are using an outdated
browser. Upgrade your browser today or install Google Chrome Frame to
better experience this site.".  It is displayed to users of MSIE 6 or
older. Google Chrome Frame itself is obsolete and not maintained any
longer.  Besides that, I don't think that MSIE 6 users are expected to
visit softwarecollections.org often enough to keep this message.

3) RPM file names are truncated in HTML repo listings such as [2].  This
makes browsing repo listings rather impractical.

4) Reviews can be requested for collections, but I couldn't find any
documentation on what the review is and who it is performed by.
