Well, thats a different extreme. :-)
Many sites have never changed since 1995. Some are changing too frequently.
With gimp.org we have sort of the first one (even if its not THAT old). With
a redesign in both content and structure we can be more flexible and add
more things which are usefull to both new and "old" users. The current
webpage organises all html-pages in the root-direcotry of the server. This
is definitely NOT flexible enough.

The site-design neednt be redesigned from scratch. It may be enough to
polish it up and remove the "Gimp-standard-script"-look, which was copied
all over the web and today has a bit trashy touch. Definitely not a good
representation for the greatest graphic program on earth. :-)
