Certainly.    This is a matter of poor organization on the web site.   
However, I have frequently noticed that despite roughly 80 people complaining 
about the state of the web site, only a tiny handful have offered to help 
with it.

I will say it again: this is an Open Source project, not a Fortune 500 vendor, 
and not a government-funded charity.   If you see something you don't like, 
fix it, or at least be polite to the people who are trying to fix it.   Don't 
rant about "why doesn't someone fix this?"; it will win you no friends.
