Rearrange projects on the Project and Downloads page


This is bugging me for some time. On the Projects page we are emphasizing our main project. Openfire, Spark and.. SparkWeb (which is not maintained or developed for 8 years). I think it should be pushed from that prominent place. I propose to just hide it on the projects page. There will still be source and download entry as well as sub-forum available. Or we can move it to the bottom of the page, but then we will need to introduce new section as it is not a library. I would also hide XIFF API from there as it is already moved to discontinued in the forums and it doesn't seem to revive. But as it is not in front, it doesn't bother me that much.

I would also like to promote Smack to have a bigger placeholder like Openfire and Spark have. Although it is a library and having a section Libraries will not have much sense (maybe renaming to "other projects" instead).

Next. Dele is still listed as Lead developer for SparkWeb, which is not true and it could be changed to "Vacant". Maybe this way someone will decide to take the lead at some point, by seeing that nobody is in charge of this project.

Third. Move SparkWeb to the bottom on the downloads page. So only active projects are at the top and in the focus.

As this is mostly just html stuff moving around i should be able to do this all myself. Just need some feedback from others on that.

Mostly done, but xmpp logo for Smack needs padding fixing and table with projects at the bottom are not lined up correctly (don't know how to fix these issues though).
