I conclude that there is actually noone who feels responsible for the
I understood that the gnome foundations purpose is to represent the gnome
project and provide an interface between the gnome community and the rest of
the world. Thats very much the same purpose a homepage has. So IMHO the
gnome foundation should feel resposible for the homepage (just an idea!). I
haven't been observing the gnome foundation so I don't know what it's

attention and resources on basic homepage stuff.
However, there are several gnome hompages (implies people working on them).
