This looks great Valerie, congrats to all of those involved in making
the web app! I hope that it leads to less questions/confusion.

Here are some minor comments, mostly about including some links/docs.

* Under the which packages we have access to, I noticed that it's not
showing the experimental data packages. I guess that's because they
are not in git yet (right?).
* Under add an ssh key, the second option mentions "username.keys
files in your GitHub account". I hadn't heard about this before. Is
that file made automatically by editing
https://github.com/settings/keys? If there's a website that describes
this in more detail, I suggest including a link to it.
* I've seen several emails where Nitesh and others ask developers to
check their SSH key using ssh -T git at git.bioconductor.org, so maybe
adding a reminder there would be good. Actually, maybe just include a
link to http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/faq/ from this
new site. By the way, that last link is not directly available from
http://bioconductor.org/developers/ (I think), I had to go to
http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/ then "See other
frequently asked questions."

* Typo: "Which packages do I have acces to?" --> access
