Well, I'd love to see what is linked to in that bug report to see what 
was being thought of before. The link (along with a few other links in 
the tracker) go to a locked resource. Either way, I think points two and 
three for what should be on the About page should be combined; the site 
was made because of the philosophy so there really is no need to create 
more fluff. I really think the intro video did a great job of getting 
the point across, the real question is how many people watched it. That 
video would be a good base of information to start with for building the 
page I think.

The bug report is simply to remove the extra "More" link altogether 
since it is redundant (and confusing.) The second "point" I'm assuming 
is the last question which actually shouldn't have been sent, that was 
my mind working while I typed ;) . What it *meant* though is "Should any 
navigational element have multiple links to the same place with 
different names?" since it seems like a bad way to do things to me.
