I agree that doing some things along these lines would be a good idea.  

Another possibility is to combine the "help us"[1] and “sponsoring"[2] pages.  
That way all the ways to help further LilyPond are in one place and we could 
link to it from the download page and/or home page with some appropriate 
message.  Combining these pages would also help reduce the large number of 
sub-pages under Community heading.  The content of the “sponsoring” page could 
become a single section on the “help us” page with a heading like “Bounties and 
Sponsorships”.  Maybe “contributing” is a good heading for all these things, 
i.e. we could have a single “contributing” page instead of “help us” and 
“sponsoring” pages?  

(Apparently I’m always thinking about what to name things…)
