I think only Fridrich can do this, as the channel's owner.

I don't know--I prefer static content myself... A link to the video
cannot hurt, but I'm not so sure about embedding it.

But I agree that the website is not perfect. It is not only that the
front page is a bit too long--it also overlaps with the About page to
some extent... Maybe the front page should contain only summarized
sections with links to complete text? With a structure roughly like the
following: 1. There is something that we perceive as a problem. 2. We
are trying to overcome the problem. 3. Our stuff is actually used. (To
show that this is not another "have a solution, looking for a problem"
project. This section could contain icons instead of a plain list, like
we currently have on the About page.) 4. Interested? Check how to
contribute!

Anyway, if you want to work on improving the website, talk to the TDF
Infra team (most likely to Cloph). Only they can give you access.

Yeah, that would be a good thing. And I assume the Scribus people would not
be against such idea either.
