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
