first of all, thank you for your nice and helpful suggestions!
After your suggestions, some discussions with my designer-colleague and some sleepless nights :) ...
... here is a new draft:
Please take a look at my drafts for the other sections on http:// en.opensuse.org/User:Rlihm As the layout was already approved by openSUSE and Novell marketing we could start with the redesign in the next days/weeks.
I´m looking forward for your comments!

I commented on -project, but I'll paste my thoughts here too:
I have been complaining for a few days about the front-page craziness with the openSUSE.org website. My main problem that there was WAY too much going on for a home page of a site. New users want just the few vital links, and I think you've done it pretty nicely there :). A few things:
* I think the front-page will either have to have some type of text/graphic openSUSE banner, or have a bigger openSUSE logo. As it is now it's a little tucked away in the top-left corner.
* I'm wondering about 'Discover it'. Perhaps that whole thing should be changed to a Support one, where the support page links to Documentation and Community-related support areas (IRC, Forums; basically, Communicate page). Or maybe "Wiki" should be changed to "Documentation"? I'm not really sure.
* Also, I'm not sure that the countrycode is necessary before the actual language. i.e. so just have "English" instead of "en - English".
* With regard to the OBS, I'm not sure we want all standard users to have the 'create it' thrown at them, since creation of packages etc is only for developers. Maybe that should be changed to a 'Participate' or "Get Involved" etc which in turn would have all the methods of getting involved (packaging, documentation, artwork, etc).
I realise a lot of these questions might not be your specific problem/issue if you're the graphic designer, but I've mentioned them for any others making the decisions here. 8)
Anyhow, nice stuff 8)
