IMO that entry page already contains enough information. Let's dare to 
leave some free space, so the elephant can breath - and visitors aren't 
overwhelmed by the amount of information presented.

Yeah, that edge there is somewhat misaligned. Especially the line on the 
left of the 'planet postgresql' box looks silly.

I can imagine giving the 'support us' box more space. OTOH, I personally 
find the 'featured user' box more appealing.

Again, I don't think that's very useful. Interested visitors will follow 
the links anyway. Remember the very short time an avg. visitor spends on 
a single site.
