The place to discuss the web site is on debian-www.

Before people jump into details, any reorganization needs to start by
looking at the big picture. We need to look at how typical users use the
site and make sure we serve them. IMO, that means newbies, people with
linux/unix experience and developers.

Much of the same goes for the intro section. There is a lot of material
there (and more that can be added). If the organization is not well
thought out in advance, it is unlikely to be an improvement on what is
already there.
