Hi Nicolas,

Working on visual and contents of the the docs is in my skills and I'm
happy to finish the job.
But I'm not a web designer and I don't like to impose myself... :)

Maybe you can check at the Monday meeting if everybody is ok with that and
write down comments in the minutes? For the next meeting I will be
available for collecting specifications, if any.

Gaël, I will check purecss.io: how much customization the basic theme needs
has to be considered too.

should Andy still be looking for a web-designer?)
