i agree here, it is really a bit too much of information and links 
on the frontpage. in my opinion we should try to reduce the number 
of links on the left and right columns. do we really need all of them? 

what if we just link News, Software, Documentation and so on, which 
are itself subfrontpages with some introduction and then further 
references to these parts of the homepage.

imho the introductionary words on the homepage, is also a bit 
too much. i would reduce it to "what is freebsd" and a summary 
of the other points. the included links in the text give the 
opportunity to acheive more information where/when 
the visitor wants too.

if i have not missunderstood releng, the "production release" 
block will vanish soon, then there would be some free space 
which could be used for these ports.
