Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2016-W31

Going back to more or less normal work mode, last week was again more focused on bug handling and improvements.

I've focused on our website, mostly due to some feedback we got from security reviews. It no longer lists MD5 checksums in favor for SHA1 and SHA256. The same change has been applied to themes as well. Besides that I've worked on making the website layout responsive, so that it works reasonably on small screens as well. In the end I've chosen to use Bootstrap for that. This work has been submitted as pull request for review. While working on the hashes, I've realized that we could do more to tell users to verify the downloaded version, so that ended up in second pull request, which adds post download popup showing information how to verify the download (preferring PGP if the release has been signed). Both changes are still pending, but will most likely be merged and put online this week.

Besides website, I've mostly spent time on reviewing pull requests, where we got quite some amount of them and were sitting in the tracker without any feedback. Many of them could be immediately merged, others have received feedback on how to improve them to make them ready for merge.
