Please don't subsum all the other projects under "Developer".

An artist will never search for a way to contribute under the "Developer" tab, I doubt the same for 
marketing, webdesign or documentation.

In opposition to Sophie and Cor I like the "Get involved" tab very much. In my eyes this attracts 
developers too.

What should be done is:
- show the broad area of possible contribution in more graphical way (I know - that needs some 
- attract developers in the most prominent way on the "Get involved" page.

Even if we need new developers more than any other contributors (I don't really know if this is 
true, but I believe what I've been told), the starting place for contribution should show our 
community in a whole. LibreOffice should try to avoid discrimination between code contributors and 
non-code contributors wherever it is possible without negative effects.

I'm quite sure, that it *is* possible to attract developers with prominent information on the "Get involved" 
page in (nearly?) the same way as with a "Developer" tab.

And coming back to the two-level navigation on the top: This would allow to move directly to a 
"Developer" sub-category, if we had (sorry, no graphical devices here at work):
                                                            (mouse over)
|   HOME   |   DOWNLOAD   |   FEATURES   |   GET HELP   |   *GET INVOLVED*   | ...

with the second line in lighter green or blue.

Best regards


I would also support the idea of keeping the "Get Involved" menu title as well as the sub-menu detailing the contributing groups to the project. The obvious listing of them would be in alphabetical order in order to avoid any concerns of showing preference to one group over another from a "public view" perspective -- the Donate button should show at the end of the group listing.

Should we not also list the "Localisation" group here as well as they form part of the LibreOffice contributing arms of the distro?
