I don't understand. What is unclear about the front page?
It also leads you to the about page
which eventually leads you to the docs.
(And yes, that is where it gets a bit hairy)

I think you have a point here that there could be a written justification on
the complexity of the components (such as TNG) on the webpage.
There is plenty in the docs, but again, could be improved.

Again, there is a which you can find
links for on the front page twice.
Is there anything unclear how to get in contact?

I think you are getting caught up in the handbook (rightly so). But for what 
you are asking the
initial place to put that is the webpage, not the handbook.
