while it is interesting what you did to the Mantis layout... I must
admit that I don't see too much improvement on its usability.
And (please understand that I don't want to insult you!) the design is
plain ugly (just *my* 2 cents!).
Ok, as you said it isn't ready yet. So I may judge too hard. ;-)
But you definitely have to work on the design:
- Small fonts
- annoying yellow background
- Links, normal text and input fields/areas aren't really easy to
Ok, my criticism might be too far gone, as your project seems to be in
the beginning phase. (but I had to say that)
I just hope that this won't be another fork like Joe Kramer's on
Mantis surely needs an improvement on the UI side. But for that I think
it would be more reasonable to join forces and improve on the main
Mantis code base and not on different forks!
