I agree with a lot of what you have said Staffan, I do not understand why
news.typo3.org isn't part of typo3.org, I check that site as a separate
bookmark because otherwise I would miss most of the news. buzz.typo3.org
could be integrated but could also stay as is with some 'tasters'  on the
homepage somewhere. And the podcasts(which I really enjoy!), I saw the news
post for the 1st one but then several months later I realise these have
been a regular thing that I have been missing as they're @
typo3.org/podcast which as far as I can see isn't linked to(clearly

Personally I like the design of the site, it's clean, but I would like to
see it overflowing with information from all of these subdomains which make
up the community.
