[dojo-contributors] a small thought experiment

I did both steps. At the top of the web page in the "prime" slot we have
Download, Documentation, Community, Blog, and Search. Logically enough
it starts with Download. In the next section we reinforce it by
prominently shown "Get Dojo" suggesting to Download. All good,
assertive, and suggestive.

The Download workflow looks simple enough: it immediately starts with
CDN (I like it), and two more options. It looks streamlined enough for
me. Maybe it is better to organize these options horizontally, rather
than vertically, but it is up to a discussion.

The Documentation workflow branches horizontally into three areas, which
are self-explanatory enough. Granted that we can improve the API part,
and have a better doc search (e.g., look up a module information by its
dojo name), Quick Start and Reference look decent.

I would say that Community and Blog are equally simple.

Did you see any obvious problem, or a way to improve the web site?

Cheers,
