Hi, all.

Does anybody think it would be a good idea to have the current release
version on the home page?

Something along the lines of

gNewsense 1.1 based on Ubuntu n.nn release name (eg Dapper)      Next
proposed release: gNewsense n.n based on Ubuntu n.nn release | target
release date (date).

This would not be a great idea from the perspective.

Not for the target release info, as we may get 1.2 out based on having a server or alternative disk, or something else. And as for the release date that is based on suck in upstream and parse rebuild do the "fixes" and produce.

This would prevent people from asking what version of Ubuntu the current
release is based upon.  It would also follow the good example of other
distros, so users can see at a glance what the current state is, without
drilling down to the FAQ.

If you feel it should be higher up go for it, faqs should be living documents and change over time.
