My biggest concern is quickly directing people towards "Getting Started" type information - the site does not do that now.
I'd suggest adding links to the FAQ and installation guide from the Downloads page at a minimum - right now, users are directed to the Mirrors page, which is a few steps too far past the learning phase.
All of you are right here. But it is the same old song.Everybody knows what changes need to be done, but nearly nobody is starting with it.
To make it short, get back to the desk and make a top-down getting started list and u will see, that it is not that easy, than just putting some links on the website.
Sure i know, that all of the information is somewhere in the wiki. You all know that. But what is really essential....Thoms words are so right. Try to see it from a users point of view - from a DAU Point of view.
Maybe start by logging the questions in irc - mostly starting with "which hardware do i need". And even linuxmce runs with most of available hardware, the learning curve will much easy and faster if you have the RIGHT hardware.
(Believe me from the technical point of view - i did the technical product management / system administration for a long time but until i had my first highlights with lmce 7.04/7.10 it took a frustrating while. and consider, many users coming to the website are not developers, not Linux specialists, but mostly USERS.)
So what should we do? Giving user just a link to "Compatible hardware", then he is again on the wiki, which sometimes is very "strange" for newbies.
What i like to say is, that this isn't a easy task. i don't believe that just putting some links on the website will help much (surely we can make a suggestion that we are just updating the section and in the meantime user has to go to the wiki)
Finally, beside the question "Who can change the website, may i", the more essential questions are:
1. To whom shall the website be addressed?
2. Is it a marketing tool or is is a "developer-catcher-tool". Or both?
3. How can we make some marketing on the web / not on the website - to drive more developers to our site.
4. What about marketing outside the web.
5 How do we write a "User Guide" which is really top down for a) Users and b) for Developers who are starting
Sorry, but just my two pence...
