Thanks Mel for fixing my wiki mess

Keep the link to http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_on_a_Stick on the
old Blueberry page though, since that's the link we communicate, is
the top search result on Google, has been bookmarked by everyone, is
linked to from the homepage, etc.

By contributors portal I guess you mean the OpenHatch site?

The pancake button should really be near the top - it's a golden rule
to simplify the path to a main download. I don't remember who did the
pancake button but I remember we didn't have the SVG at first, I will
hunt for it so we can do a Mirabelle color.

By the way, the shiny SoaS site is not showing any text on my old Mac
running a very old version of Safari (v1.3.2). Displays OK in Firefox
though. I don't suppose there is a plain-html version available, or a
way to warn users their browser is bad?
