Thank you for the feedback.
 * Your points about the navigation being confusing are relate-able. We
need to improve in this area.
 * You say that all lines in the source browser are the same color. This
could be due to Pygments not being installed correctly. Do you have a
"Syntax Highlighting" tab on the prefs page (/prefs/pygments)? It could
also be due to the mimetype on a file being set to text/plain. The mimetype
should be autodiscovered for common file extensions if not set on the file.
 * I agree that we should offer more flexibility for users to customize the
mainnav. This will be improved in #636.
 * The roadmap needs a Bootstrap template, which is why it is not visually
appealing. Some would say that the Roadmap is replaced by the Dashboard,
but I think we should make the Roadmap usable for those that choose to use
