Comment (by ryelle):

 This does work for this release & last, because the About page didn't
 really change. Do you think we're not going to change the About page with
 each release anymore?

 > I did some mockups to test whether we would be able to build this in
 such a way that it could be a super simple image + copy update for each

 The About page should also be an image + copy (and color) update with each
 release, but the design needs mean we end up needing to rewrite parts with
 every release. I can easily see that happening here too.

 I feel like I'm hearing conflicting things about whether this will be
 another step for release, with both "maybe we'll revisit the copy in 6.1"
 and "the design will change every release". It's hard to get the
 design/copy down for the About page, I'm worried about the timeline if we
 need to wait for the About page visuals to be done before we can make the
 dashboard updates every release.
