Re: GNOME's Target Markets

I agree completely.  We can't start a marketing campaign of any
sort if our main marketing tool, our home page, continues to be
stale and devoid of dynamic content.

How many of you visit the gnome web page regularly?  My guess is
maybe once a month?  Why?  Because it's not the center of GNOME
activity.  Planet,, and other areas are the primary
places I go to for GNOME koolaid.

The GNOME home page should be, to use a corporate expression, "job 1".
