I love OpenNTF, and I have used it alot.  I find it very difficult to maneuver around in.  Going through all projects and finding out what they do (if you can't figure it out based upon the name alone) takes a long time.
 
Communicating and collaborating with other people who are either reporting bugs or discussing ideas, fixes, work arounds, etc, seems very difficult.
 
Since there is no real support for any of the tools/projects on OpenNTF, and most of us are utilizing Lotus Notes/Domino in enterprise level corporations, we need a better way to get support from within the community and collaborate on ideas when discussing the projects.  The best way to do this is to update the communication platforms.
 
The first place to start (which I feel would help the acceptance of OpenNTF.org) would be to list the projects on the main page, with a seperate column that explains what the project does.  Make finding project types easier, by being able to select by category.  The new theme already has the categories below the top 10 projects.  This is a good start.
 
Relate projects to other projects.  People who downloaded this project, also downloaded these projects (list of projects)
 
 
The second thing is that the site seems to be very slow.  Not sure if there is anything that can be done about this, but it makes matters worse.
 
Just released goes to the releases tab, but if you click on a project from any other location is goes to the About tab.  This maybe be beneficial for those who are the site quite often, but for those who don't visit very often or are new to the site, this might add an extra step in understand what the "new release" is.  I would think that a "new release" is a new project release.  Though, I can understand that this might mean, new release of an existing project.  It seems confusing, and an extra step is there when I want to see what the project does.
 
 [edit]
Additionally, it would be a big help if all of the discussion thread items were viewable on a single page instead of having to reload every thread item to read the thread.  This would help make it faster to read about what's going on, especially since the site is slow.
 
The same goes for bug reports, requests views.
 
For example on this site, you can see the idea itself, and by loading the comments view, you can see the original idea, plus all of the comments in one page.

Enable a tags field for projects so that it is easier to find projects by tags.
