Comment (by ryelle):

 > Body text looks a little bit small and semi-bold. The style in mockup is
 font-size 18px line-height 28px, and font-weight 300 (Regular).

 I've updated the font size, but left the body text at the current font-
 weight (regular) since 300 is light, and light body text can be hard to

 > It seems that “More Template Choices” is implemented as two sections
 instead of one.

 Yeah, I mentioned that in the PR, I switched it to a single narrow column
 so that the "with the following new options […]" text would clearly flow
 into the next section.

 > Do we have a tentative deadline for freezing the content?

 Content is frozen now, the deadline for string changes was this past
 tuesday (RC1). If the current layout works, I would rather stick with it —
 we don't really have the time to keep iterating. I decreased some of the
 spacing in the two sections you mentioned, so hopefully that helps.

 I've made the other font and spacing changes, but I didn't change the text
 alignments. The subheading and "additional design tools" paragraphs are
 all longer, and centering long text makes it harder to read the content.

 @fcoveram you can either try [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-
 develop/pull/2681 the new PR] or just review the screenshot above :)
