Given how effective our post-download pop up is on the web site, I think that
using our first open page to 'speak' to our users is definitely something to
resurrect. It would be great to provide:
* a list of recent projects (as we have now)
* a list of recent blog articles from planet.qgis.org
* a list of current crowd funding projects and their funding progress
* a panel for us to directly send notifications to users e.g. 'QGIS 2.14.7 is
out, please upgrade!'
* links for funding and sponsoring QGIS
I think it is also worth speaking to Nyall about his crowd funding experiences
- last I chatted to him he had some doubts as to whether it is a really
effective tool at the moment. Perhaps getting the publicity on the app opening
view might fix that....
