I have added two more items to the recent changes lists.

I have added a little more orange color for the code-snippets. Depending
on your location, it might take up to 24h to deliver the new CSS through
the CDN.

Do you have any ideas for colorful content that could be added to the
home page?

Yes, this is an option. For now, I have concentrated on the responsive
part and didn't want to change too much of the old color theme.

With two very similar websites it might become confusing. The visitor
might get lost between the two pages. If we go this way, I guess that we
have to merge the top menus and make the two websites appear as if they
were one: With some pages hosted at gnu.org and some pages hosted at SF.net.
