I don't know what's going on behind the scenes, but
where is the marketing side and the Novell/SuSE
knowledge involved?
OpenSuSE has important goals and at the moment the
frontpage it THE portal to openSuSE. Current subject
acknowledges there is demand to improve the frontpage
(or even the site) to better match the goals.

Since Novell supports the project and it is in both
OpenSuSE and Novells interest to make the project
succesfull by using all resources provided. So far I
have only read vague plans to start the lift-up /
redesign and mainly targeted to hope to get some
ideas/help from the starting community.
This sounds nice if the project was started by the
community from ground up, but this is OpenSuSE. We
already have a large user/knowledge base from the
corporate years besides the fresh open community.

The SuSE website was very good for years, build to
attract. Novell/SuSE adapted the concepts and there it
is still strong. Novell and SuSE have done a good job
so far to make (open)SuSE attractive by use of their
very well designed websites and their marketing
knowlegde. It is not hard to imagine why there is
demand for a lift-up/redesign with this in mind with
the current wiki look-and-feel and where to get some
solid startup help for this?

Maybe this sounds not-done from community perspective
to make it really a community project, but OpenSuSE
needs a good and solid start with help from both
sides.

Greg Mancusi-Ungaro should be available for the
marketing perspective for the lift-up and there must
be some talented Novell/SuSE design staff.
