Hi Americo! Thank you for the kind words, it's been quite fun to work on!

I love these ideas. I'm wondering if they wouldn't all fit better on a new
page of some sort that can highlight results from the community. I have
mostly been focusing on translating the old site first and foremost, and to
enhance the site with pages as everyone agrees it might be fun to do. We
may have to put a section on the front page ("Community" maybe?) that will
link to a page of submitted, high quality content.

+ "Trend GIMP discussion"
Is this something similar to the "News" items that we already have?
Perhaps just expanded a bit with more regular "blog" type posts from the
team or community in some way? Not sure what the thoughts around this are,
as I get the feeling that blogging is not a common thing for most of the
team (not to say that it couldn't happen).

The Front Page
I have been tinkering with the layout of the front page.  I still need
input or verbiage describing some of the sections, and some opinions on a
couple of things.

1. Should we include news items higher up on the page?  I am not quite
how best to incorporate news items on the main page.  Possibly as a small
list of headlines to latest posts?  Only the most recent post + a link to
the "News" archive page?  Any thoughts on this?

2. I was thinking about highlighting the fact that GIMP is extensible
through scripts and plug-ins.  Any input on this that I can add to a
section on the front page?

The redesign proceeds very well, Patrick great work!
I would like to suggest some sections to Front Page:

+ "Interviews" -- with people the is using GIMP as professional tool
(photographers, painters, illustrators, designers, schools, cases,
print-services, universities, etc.);

+ "Made with GIMP" -- a special guest to make a work to front page with
GIMP. Would be very interesting to invite different areas to have a
collection that could be used to promote GIMP on social networks, meetings,

+ "Trend GIMP discussion" or another name to post good articles of the
community or the of own staff around the discussion of mailing list or of
the difficult aspects of GIMP app, for example., CMYK, Money to developers
crowdfunding, GEGL, etc... ;-);

+ "Videos and Animation 2D and 3D" -- who is using GIMP to do video
animation... for example, Gustavo Deveze is doing.
