Doing actual changes with what we have should already be a good beginning.
One thing about the frontpage is that there should be something to attract
repeat visitors. e.g. Project Milestones last date is Apr 13th. Nothing
happening after that? No more upcomming events. No news.

As long as information is hidden, it will not attract people to get there
and/or to do changes.

"Not enough people are active". Do you mean on this list? Many people do
not like lists. Also this list is more about technical issues then
anything else.

To realy know if more people are helping out, it would be nice to see some
pre- and post-openSUSE bugzilla numbers.
