Hi, not sure how to post an RFE so left me try here.

roundup's out of the box registration, confirmation, login features are
well thought out and certainly do offer immediate gratification! Thanks!

I might be too used to google and gmail interfaces for handling user
preferences, but I'd like to suggest moving the login submenu to the top
left corner of the page and putting preferences like "Your Details"
"Your Issues" etc on a separate profile page of some sort. This would
free up a bit of screen real estate in the left column. See google's own
http://codereview.appspot.com/ for an example.

It's not really a bug but the left column a little is a bit crowded and
occasionally the block elements overflow into the content area. Around
line 73 in style.css I needed to change "margin left" to 0.5 or 1 to
keep the login menu from overflowing.

 .menu ul ul
 {
   margin-left: 2em;
   font-size: smaller;
 }

This occurs with Firefox 3.6 but not 3.5 or Opera 10 and seems related
to browser font sizes interaction with body > .navigation etc. The
cleanest way to fix it that I could see was to remove the whole menu and
make a preferences page: thus the RFE.

cheers,

ps: thanks for all the work on roundup - it is an excellent piece of
software.

Roundup's UI has been _largely_ untouched since I originally wrote it in 2001 :-)

I'd welcome work on the UI but I think it really needs to be a general overhaul, rather than 
tinkering.

Is there a new cool pythonic templating toolkit/language that you prefer
over others? :) There's so many good ones to choose from and they seem
to be morphing into one another. jinja genshi django errm ...

While I'd love to ditch ZPT I don't think that's reasonable given the
install base of Roundup users. It's also unnecessary to achieve purely
cosmetic changes.
