Hi, that looks good, thanks. Here are some ideas :

 - The purple color of titles is not very attractive, changing it to
   something more saturated would make it look fresher.

 - the purple color rounded box is not very attractive either :)

 - there is a video right on the first page, good ! Unfortunatly, it is
   not showing darcs but its cousin. Also, the title is "why do we
   continue to develop ... [camp]", which isn't the most positive
   approach one can expect on a start page

 - the compact tutorial is great, I love it. It deserves more poish. For
   inspiration, one can have a look at this website for example :

 - underlined links looks a bit 90's. You can add a simple css rule to
   choose an other color and remove the underline (though it is good
   practice to set it on mouseover)
