Well, I keep hearing complaints that tasks relevant to desktop
publishing (strictly in terms of GIMP being a better companion to e.g.
Scribus) are not specifically mentioned in the product vision. Other
than that, it still seems valid.

Personally, I'm unsure whether we really, really need the splash
something that needs to go to the News section, same as all news items
that are currently only accessible via admin interface.
http://www.gimp.org/bugs/why_bugzilla.html -- I guess there used to be
some controversy back then, otherwise someone wouldn't spend time
writing this, but I'm not sure if it's of value now.
bugzilla and submit-patch howtos should be somewhere in th Contribute
section of the new website or something.
http://www.gimp.org/contest/index.html isn't required anymore, IMO.
http://www.gimp.org/links/org.html is full of dead links. I'd say,
clean up and make it part of a sitemap page.
http://www.gimp.org/programmatic/admin/howto.html and other
programmatic pages are dead.
http://www.gimp.org/unix/howtos/tile_cache.html might need a technical
review from someone like mitch or pippin.
