Bug#862980: Update the homepage, to show the social face of the project, and be more attractive for newcomers
At the Diversity and Inclusion BoF in MiniDebConf Cambridge 2016 
it has been suggested to update the Debian website frontpage exposing
more the social part of the project (currently, it's very centered in
Debian the OS).
Other suggestions/comments, in order to make the website more
attractive to newcomers:
A rewording of the two paragraphs about Debian in the homepage could
be a good start.
Current content is:
<p><a href="https://www.debian.org/">Debian</a> is a
<a href="intro/free">free</a> operating system (OS) for yourcomputer.
An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that
make your computer run.
<p>Debian provides more than a pure OS: it comes with over
<packages_in_stable> <a href="distrib/packages">packages</a>,
precompiled software bundled
up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine. <a
One source of inspiration could be the paragraph that we include in
<p>The Debian Project is an association of Free Software developers
who volunteer their time and effort
in order to produce the completely free operating system Debian.</p>
For sending your proposals, any way is welcome:
* Plain text with the new paragraphs
* diff against the current source file:
