- Primary Target Users: End-Users, Small Businesses, Potential Contributors
- Especially target software developers until the developer support has been stabilized
- Show that this is an international project
- Use two-level navigation (max)
- Avoid jumps between pages --> strict hierarchical grouping
- Action links can be used, e.g. for Referring to Latest Features
- "Call for Developer" on the Welcome page
- After detecting the OS for the download --> refer to corresponding OS installation instructions
