At the Diversity and Inclusion BoF in MiniDebConf Cambridge 2016 [1]
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:

<div id="intro">
<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
href="intro/about">Read more...</a></p>

One source of inspiration could be the paragraph that we include in
our announcements:

<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
* html
* diff against the current source file:

Best regards
