Hi all,

I've written up a list of content for each of three landing pages. I'd love
to get feedback, and then I'll start creating prototypes of a design of
these three pages.

I'm thinking really we want three new pages —

1) Main site home page, just the most important highlights / introduction

2) Docs home page, to get more in-depth on presenting the Docs

3) Get Involved page, to be a one-stop place for fully understanding how to
join us

Here's proposed content for each:

*Top-Level Landing page (Main home page)*


Introductory paragraph, why this is awesome

Video explaining project

*There’s Web Platform Information Here for You:*

What’s the “web platform”

List of resources (ones that are ready)

(with not-ready resources listed as well, greyed-out)

*We Need Help! You Can Join Us!:*

Invitation to contribute to the project

Explanation of the kinds of help that are needed, who’s qualified

Who’s already involved

Big Link to the next step / more info

*We Are Active / Here’s the latest:*

Recent Blog posts:

news, announcements, roundup of past doc sprint events

accomplishments, updates, thanks to people

what’s up next, where’s the momentum, what needs help most

Highlight most recently-finished sections of the site with credit to people

Upcoming events you can attend, doc sprints
