By bringing people into the Fedora community through a main landing

Here's the problem we want to solve... too much information to dissiminate.
I don't think a single landing page is going to work.  You want a link
farm, we can have a link farm, but I don't think it makes any sense at
all to make the link farm the entry point for new people, nor is a
guided tour entry point a good thing for existing contributors.

What current contributors need and what potential contributors need
are totally different and we need entry points which recognize that.
On top of that, if we are serious about 'messaging', then we need an
entry point which is dedicated nearly entirely to 'messaging.'
That's sort of how messaging works right... you have to be on message
consistently.

I'm not afraid of dividing traffic, I'm afraid of shallow traffic...
people who hit an entry point and lose interest quickly because the
page has the wrong information and get bored... or too much
information and they get lost.

100% agreed. I think right now the site has a bit of an identity crisis and is trying to be too many things to too many people and is only pleasing them all maybe 25-30%.

Better to appeal a scoped out, targeted 30% of people 90%+ than satisfy 90%+ at a 30%. (make sense?)
