How do you define "at its launch". So yes, when the "sitch is turned
over" going from the current website to the cms driven website, the
pages that are currently on the TDF website are a must-have.

I'd not go into changing visual design yet.

Depending on the progress of the german-lang testsite, a couple of
pages from that area could be part of the initial launch as well.

But with initial launch I really mean the day when the switch is made.
After that, when groups can be established, those groups would add
their own content.

If that is our plan, then the CMS choice is much simpler.

I've written a list of pages as I think they should be organized in the wiki,

Unfortunately you put it into a document that needs to be downloaded
to be viewed, and thus cannot easily be modified/adapted.

I think the current 8 main-pages as we have now are a good start for
the initial launch, after all you can only create the pages when you
got the content for it.
(and of course it's not written in stone, you're always free to change
the site structure afterwards)

Christian: What is your expectation for site IA? Can you list the site sections and pages you 
envision, especially if they are very different from what I have put onto the wiki?

Well, as you especially mentioned future needs, then I'd say that the
libreoffice part will be much shorter no the main TDF page, after all
it will someday have it's own page at (that currently
just links to the foundation page)

But really I'd not go into details of the structure right now, i think
it's too early.

Finally, based on what I have observed from Mozilla's organization, shouldn't we consider two 
separate websites at different domains (one for TDF, and one for LibO)?

Ah, you got the same opinion on that one :-) - see above.

As to your layout proposals: I'd be happy to leave that decision to
marketing/branding - putting a corresponding frontpage and css
together is way easier than to actually agree upon a design :->

I think this would be much easier for users to understand, as they'd want to spend their time on 
LibO site. Meanwhile, community participants would mostly use the TDF site. Perhaps we could
make one of these sites use SilverStripe and one use Drupal, as a compromise...

Not sure whether that is a good idea, but Steering Committee has final
word anyway.
