It is more important than you're thinking now. So many times, when I talk about Hurd with friends, my friends are afraid because the website is old, ugly, out-of-date, and very confusing.
All the time I have to search and share with them the exact links of the main pages (FAQ, docs, latest Debian GNU/Hurd image, Debian GNU/Hurd installing tips...).

I wrote my own tutorials for these people, because they usually aren't able to find information about how to install, how to use... etc, in an easy way.
Many times, some friend who has been interested in Hurd, left the idea of using that system due to these difficulties.

So yes, renew and doing the web more accessible and attractive is very important to get attract new users and contributors

Discovering something by accident, yes. But deciding to have a look at
some project only because the website is all shiny, no, I do not
understand. Actually almost the contrary in my case, if I see a shiny
website telling me "this is great software!", I become all wary, for
fear of overzealous marketting.

Please keep more mail context, I had to dig back on this one. I still
don't understand what you mean here.
