I volunteered for fixing the broken links and outdated information on
the current web site (until the new site is ready). If you see any
broken link or incorrect stuff on some pages, please submit a bug
report to Bugzilla. This is explained at the bottom of this page:
If you want to suggest more extensive changes for the web site, then
the correct place to discuss that is the gimp-web mailing list. You
can find the information about this list on the mailing lists page:

Thanks, but I cannot be the only one taking credit for that. Several
developers are taking care of Bugzilla on a regular basis. Recently,
the main contributors have been Daniel, Sven, Mitch and myself. But
Sven and Mitch are actually fixing the bugs, while Daniel and I are
mostly verifying if the bug reports are valid and asking for more
information if necessary (and submitting patches from time to time).

Yes. But maybe some of the links are not visible enough? Suggestions
