I want to help to make the Debian website and wiki more welcoming and started
with a suggestion for the frontpage.
I read the links of the bugreport and wrote the suggestion below.
I think the frontpage should be nice facts in easy sentences (as it already
was) but add the mentioning of Linux (as many people will know what it is but
might not link it to Debian), mention the Debian Project as a community and add
a link to the diversity statement to show newcomers and interested people that
this is important for the community to include everyone and last but not least
make the links below more visible because i didn't relly see them for quite
some time (just after looking up the Debian help page for like the hundriethed
time I found this nice link).
In https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2017/05/msg00134.html it is mentioned
to sell debian more, this i would put into the Debian about page. So that the
text on the frontpage stays nice and compact as it is and if you want to know
more about "what is debian", "how to get debian", "how to get involved" and so
on, you will find more information in the links.
looking forward to comments on this suggestion
