Hi Loic,

Hi !
Most of the effects in the PSD can be achieved with CSS3, unless you
want to spend hours aligning drop shadows and rounded rectangles, I'd
highly recommend it, and I'd be happy to help out.
The remainder is turning out to be a bit of a pain as the objects
aren't perfectly aligned. I'll try get the header and the remaining
graphics to you tomorrow.

I must confess that I'm ignorant of the status of CSS3 and browser compatibility. Would it be a 
problem or can it be ignored ?
Attached is 1) the bugtest logo in Vegur and 
Could you please make it just "Bug" instead of "BugTest" ?
2) an image sprite of all
the left hand menu states (I assume you know how to do use image
sprites with CSS). I'd use a simple <a> element with display: block,
255 x 64px (with appropriate padding).

I've integrated them at and it looks a lot better already ;-)

I used individual images instead of sprites because I plan to run when I'm finished to create an image such as and update the background offsets 
accordingly in the CSS for me. That saves me the tedious maintenance of sprites offset. Do you know 
of a better technique ?

I completed the CSS/HTML integration, using placeholder images and modifying the javascript to 
adapt for it. You can see how it looks at:

How do you suggest we proceed from there ?

I'm very happy that you're willing to help with CSS/HTML integration because
exporting the necessary images is above my paygrade :-)
Regarding the staging area, I'm using
which is built from
and installed according to

In order to actually see the various states, one has to run the application,
which is inconvenient. I will create a static page demonstrating all the
possible states. So that it can be easily copied without the need to
actually install the reverse proxy. For the rest, I will follow your advice
on how to proceed.
If I'm given a set of images I can take care of the CSS / HTML integration.
I actually enjoy it ;-) Only I'm not skilled at exporting images...


If ?skin is added to the Bug Submission Assistant URL, links are shown to
display all the states. For instance ?skin=submit will show the page as it
would look just before the user submit the form. For HTML/CSS integration,
it helps to visualize the states locally without the need to actually
install the corresponding reverse proxy.

You can now install the Bug Submission Assistant locally with

git clone
cd website/bug
make # requires and
browser bug/bug.html?skin

as explained at

You can also see how it currently looks at

I will make the necessary changes to replace the <select> box with stylable
menus based on <div> because that requires javascript side modifications. I
will be on all day if you need me.


I integrated the subcomponent menu and the list of steps to the left,
because that involved some javascript. I cut images from Aleksandar
screenshots, to use as placeholders until the real images properly exported
with transparency and all are available. You can see the result at:

and you can quickly go thru the various steps as explained above with the
links on top of

I'll keep working on the integration, using placeholder images, until the
real images are available.
