Hello JoH,

+ 1

Or even better, the main column should be short moduls of text giving "newbies" 
and other short explanation about typo3.org, wiki, news, support and so on 
(with links). For me as a user for some years, the startpage hasn't any big 
value. I get all the news via RSS, and my bookmarks are direct to extensions 
and documentation.

I think http://plone.org/ (Plone) has an interesting approach on the frontpage. 
We shouldn't copy, but maybe some ideas.

> missing some sections)
> Maybe a "menu of these pages with abstract" together with some nicely

> current list of news items, that IMHO should be moved to a smaller
> right column while the main column could contain such a teaser menu of
> "external URLs" linking to the subdomains.
> If we agree on this I would be glad to setup this new home page, maybe
> with some help from people who are better icon designers.
