Yep, taking care of common new user problems is a clear hole to fill.
But I expect you to have something in mind as well -- something of your own
that has motivated you to create a new Debian site. It's good to poll for
new ideas, but you need to have your own independent thoughts based on your
own experience. Otherwise you are just duplicated existing material.
Anyway, I'd love to see not just docs for new users but configuration software
that plays an active role in plugging the holes. Don't just give me better
things to read (although that's great), give me a tool that finds and fixes
