I think it's basically the name + the content + fans. The name gives a
strong indication about what the site does. Fans, especially those who
are not involved in the day to day development of gnome will be more
drawn into a site where they feel it's actually about what they do:
promote what they love, but not what they don't understand: development
etc. Not sure if what I wanted to say got through :)

keep in mind that "fan sites" are nothing new in the business world nor
in the OSS world. eg and 
the success of spreadfirefox, which should give us some lessons.
