Hey Holger

It would be a good idea to start working on the tests redesign as that's a very applicable use case of what the style guide was supposed to help. I'd suggest the style being based on the Reproducible Builds branding with variable color palette based on the actual project it represents. So typography, shapes and layout would be Reproducible Builds but colors would be Debian for example.

But of course you should prioritize which seems most urgent for now. We don't have the capacity to tackle all these at once :)

We can definitely chat more at FOSDEM but it would be good to have a rough idea beforehand.
