Re: [tools-pmc] website

Could you (or someone else with commits rights to the website) DELETE all
of the following lines from _projectCommon.php:
After that change, the font size setting should be honoured, and preserved
across pages regardless of theme. I also added the font size control to
Lazarus, down at the bottom of the page as there wasn't room at the top.
Yes, I've just confirmed that there are a number of recent changes to
the Phoenix theme which aren't in Lazarus. I'm pulling these across
now and testing it out. I've raised a bug to attach my Lazarus update
I suggest we revisit the issues after that's gone in.
