Well, thanks for fixing the mobile view.

But I think we could have a more general discussion about the look and
feel of the website. I agree OpenLDAP is dedicated to system
administrators, but this is not an excuse to have an, excuse me for
the term, "ugly" website.

There is also a work to do on the content, as some pages were not
updated since years, see for example: http://www.openldap.org/conf/

I am willing to help the community on this topic, if any help is welcome.
