Hi Arnulf,
At least a couple things are definitely underway!
1 - migration of our site to new hosts (80%) - no issues with the host, looking good.
2 - upgrade to latest CMS version (50%) - a few bugs to work out.
3 - implementing a new theme (75%) - getting started soon - will get professional support to get this done.  Getting it into Drupal is the next step.

I've put out a call for others who are good with Drupal to help and received a couple responses.  Wolf is too busy lately, and he had been hoping to do much of this work, but I've been coordinating with him.  

I like your idea of re-theming the front page.  We'll also have some new content and categories to pull together to match the proposed site map.[1]

When all the above is ironed out, a re-dump of the active site will occur and we'll be ready to switch over.  I'm hoping by the end of the year.

Hope that helps, anyone else who is lurking and wants to help on any of these is welcome!  So far I've done most of it myself.
