A good suggestion. I will to try to add that in useful places.

While looking into this I noticed that even I have difficulties
to get from the Debian homepage to a site that explains apt and
what it is used for and how.

One could go Home -> Doc -> Debian Reference -> HTML, but I doubt
anyone would find this. I think there should be at least one
paragraph on /distrib/packages and one on /intro/about

It seems apt never really arrived on the web site...
