Hi, we installed a testversion of the current webclient svn

It contains a new inplace login field, and some changes to the

I found a small issue: When I hover the login area in Konqueror [1],
everything from "Username" to "Manage account" is underlined.
I doubt this is intended...

I'd like to propose another change:

A common usecase for me is that I want to go to a project or package
that is not in my watchlist. To do this, there are basically two ways:
a) go to the projects list, search for the project, click it, then click
the package
Disadvantage: this is slow and circumstantial
b) go to any project or package page, then modify the URL in the
browser's address bar.
Disadvantage: not really user-friendly

I'd like to have some of "quick jump" input fields where I can enter the
project and (optional) package name and am then taken to this

A quick mockup is attached to this mail.

The code that handles this form would be very simple. Pseudocode:

if ($package == "") {
header("Location: project_page?project=$project")
} else {
header("Location: package_page?project=$project&package=$package")
