. There has been some push on redesigning and freshening up its 'look and feel' which some of that work has been completed. However, the problem is we need to answer what is the purpose of start.fp.o?. Without answering this question, we can't redesign it without having a target audience in mind.
I got some very thoughtful responses. Here are some of my thoughts around them:

I think having some feedback on how to improve Fedora is great. My only thought is the 'start' page really the best place for that? If this is the first time i've used Fedora, how would I know what it should improve in.
This also leads into a question... do users actually keep the site start.fp.o as a default page after their first FF launch?

We currently try to integrate some of the stuff in lists.fp.o and planet. Once Insight is fully implemented it can be added too.

Yes. We surely want folks to contribute to the project. We already have join.fp.o (which is just a redirect). Maybe she should highlight that stuff more in other places too?

This is an interesting thought. It reminds me of a 'how to get started' type thing, which is what ideally start.fp.o should be. We already have some tutorials written but there is so much community driven content out there that we should be able to point to them as resources for users. This definitely keeps the content writing ourselves to a minimum.
What I don't understand is what you mean by "make it part of the release process". Are you referring to make it parts of the docs/marketing/websites beta/alpha/ga release processes? And who will own this?
