I'd like to collect your feedback on one specific areas which will
be so to say one of the most visible outcomes of the new website:
new and improved top menus.

I would not exactly call the top menus of the present website my
pet-peeve, but for some reasons they can end up being quite
confusing. The "Get Help - Get Involved - Developers" suite strikes
me as unclear, especially for the pages it's leading too (note: I
don't mind redundancy in content, but not so much for top menus).

Here's a very first and rough ideas of the top menus I'm thinking
about. Please comment:

- Home
- The Suite
- Download
- Get Help -Support (pardon the unclear title)
- Community
- Events
- About

What do you think?

What about 'discover it' instead of 'The Suite'? Since this is
LibreOffice main site.

First, thanks for your input. What you guys are both hinting at -and
we'll see that with the users survey later this weekend- is not so much
an access to our community infrastructure (mailing lists, git repo,
etc.) and a standard product page that an articulation of content
that's aimed to the end users - and even more precisely at the new or
potential end users. 

My question then would be twofold:
- should we have an overlay of pages (like we have right now, if you
  simply go to presenting the "discover it" as well as
  the "get involved" aspects on top of the static homepage?
- should the "Get Involved" section or top menu be actually different
  from anything that could fall under the community section?

My feeling -it's only my opinion- would be that whatever we do for
anything like these sections and the homepage, we do it with the new
or  potential users in mind. In other terms we ought to be targetting
- potential user, who can be anything between a total newbie up to a
  rather experienced user of MS Office or any other suite
- a new user or just a user who might as well be tempted in joining the
  community and get involved. 

In this sense we have a recurring theme when it comes to the future
content and its  presentation. More specialized parts of our infra
ought to be accessed from these menus or from  places like the download
section and the About section.

What do you think?
