Getting the drupal.org re-design implemented: Drupal companies please sponsor a section

For the last year the Drupal.org redesign has progressed quietly and steadily. Almost 200 people have participated in the redesign by commenting, discussing, reviewing, testing, designing, theming, or writing code to get it done.

We are now asking Drupal consulting shops to step forward and help us implement one section of the redesign.
