The font size looks ok from my linux desktop but it looked unreadable
on my xp laptop. I don't know if any one else observed this or not. I
do like the way cpython's tracker items look (which is pretty much
same on both my machines).

I am not expert at these things but I guess some one who is
maintaining jython.org needs to do this. Frank, Charlie?

AFAICT, jython.org doesn't operate any mailing lists on it's own. It
would be nice if we (jython community) can set up at least few of
these lists. I found python's New-Bugs-Announce list very useful and
am sure the same will be true for jython. Frank, Charile: comments?

As for the admin_email, I am ok for my email to be added there.
