Description

Following the conclusion of this ticket #2663 we should consider revising the text on the About page. Right now it just has the mission statement and a link to our Wikipedia entry. Neither of them is a direct way of answering on the page the question "what is the commons?"

The assumption is that the "what is" question is the one most people have in mind followed by questions like, "why was it made," "who makes it," "who pays for it,"how long has it been around," some of which are answered and some not.

If we do decide to rewrite it, there is the question of the tone of voice. Right now it is very formal with just the mission statement. Do we want to keep it formal or go for something more informal?

If others agree we should get into this I can take a stab at it (other volunteers welcome too).
