I don't have any objections to putting more (or less) content on the website. 
What I'm talking about is the separation of this content, so that users who 
know nothing about PHP etc. can simply view GL as a complete product. For 
example, you could put up a few download links, some nice pictures, tell them 
about the great features, and give them an idea of what they can expect in 
the next release.

The *developer* site would focus on all the development news and discussions. 
You could even put the archives of this list on this site.

If these two types of content are put up on the same site, I think it would 
scare away a lot of potential users who are not interested in development. I 
think this may be happening *right now*.
