Comment added by Robin Fowler:

Thanks for the feedback. It's a good point with the download button. I will find a way to
make it more obvious.

Regarding navigation, here are some of my thoughts:

*Homepage MUST provide concise information of what the product is about. The user should not
have to search for this basic information.

*Keep it as simple as possible. This means less web pages as long as content can be implemented
in a way that doesn't make a page feel cluttered or too long. So for instance I would make
one "get involved" page, where information is provided on the various ways of getting involved
and you find links to more information.

If possible, I would like to include the "focus area" and "native language" in a single page,
perhaps called "Resources". And things like extensions and templates also on the same page,
providing a "more information" link to where you would actually download extensions/templates.

Search box will be added, i forgot about that.

In reply to a comment by David Fisher:
I like these designs, a lot.

I have some comments on the home page design.

(1) The Download button is "Below the fold" and won't be immediately visible to users.

(2) A search box and more buttons are needed for the top navigation.
