And if that's deemed too burdensome for now, we could have the first
paragraph be "New to Scheme? See https://about.scheme.org/. Want the
latest Scheme news? See https://news.scheme.org/" and thus delegate
maintaining the fresh and inviting stuff to subprojects - but I do agree
that having the homepage pull some "latest news" from subdomains would
be pretty neat.
