I like the way the page is coming along.

I would suggest saying something at the top about what gNewSense is
*most* looking for help with at this moment in time. People may have the
skills to help with any of these tasks, and so they will wonder which
one would be most important to help with.

I also think that something should be said about the fact that gNewSense
does not have the support of corporations behind it like many other
distributions do, and so it depends on volunteer help to make things
happen. I think that will help motivate people to want to contribute.

address@hidden seems like a good idea. I agree about the
acronym, now that you mention it.
