Yes, I think we could pretty much revisit the "Discover LibreOffice", a
section I've never been quite happy with. I do notice something which
jumps to my eyes in the Debian's new website, which is how it has drawn
direct inspiration from our website:
- focus on community (with a picture taken at a conference)
- similar iconset
- words/terms close to what you find on our website.
So I'd say they took a lot from us, but their simple and clear
distinction between community and product is something for us to study

I hope (for them) this is only a mockup, because I found a lot of issues
with their layout and how information are showed/organized (and I am not
a web developer/designer). Plus, the two column layout (abruptly
inserted and interrupted, indeed) doesn't feel right to me.
The actual landing page for libreoffice.org is much better than the new
Debian one from a design/usability point of view, IMHO.

That's the only good idea I would take from that page.
The only idea I had (but frankly has to be developed) is a first
"landing" page with a clear product/community split, pointing the two
parts to their own specific "minisite" inside libreoffice.org (like
libreoffice.org/community - libreoffice.org/product or
community.libreoffice.org - product.libreoffice.org).
And, additionally, maybe libreoffice.org/community should really point
to documentfoundation.org (which probably needs a new fresh face, also).

I don't agree on these being in Community, since these items are
strictly related to LibreOffice as a software; they will not exist if
LibreOffice wasn't a product, either. They are better fitted on the
Product part, with a big fat sign indicating these are products and are
maintained by the Community.
I'm uncertain on ask.lo.org, additionally.
Nothing to say about what I haven't cited here, I fully agree :)
