Finally I got some time to do something about the look and feel of the WordPress template. I cannibalized the default WordPress template and made some minimal changes (that way I made sure it was compliant with WordPress standards). Looks good and will be improved over time for now at least the website and the Blog look more consistent!
To give something back the community I also made this a downloadable WordPress theme (it will take some time to get it added to the WordPress website, so I made a link to the Kenai.com site.). It is also on Subversion on the 1.1 branch (under website/blog/wordpress/themes).
