[Numpy-discussion] numpy.org website redesign proposal

Hi all,

I just opened https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/14032, which contains a
NEP for a redesign of the NumPy website (just the top-level site, not the
docs). The part that most warrants discussion is probably the translation
part. Additions to the NEP from anyone who has useful experiences with
managing translations like that would be quite welcome.

There's a couple of motivations for writing this as a NEP:
1. Ensure that we're all on the same page before doing quite a bit of work
2. Empowering people who have offered help with the website to go ahead and
make changes. We got a few offers of help from people who are new to the
project, which is awesome. I want to make sure they feel comfortable making
some decisions.
3. Pushing forward with the website redesign now prepares the ground for
GSoD, where we have tech writers and people with marketing skills that I
hope will generate much better content than we have now. Integrating that
content is much easier in a well-designed site than into the current Sphinx

I also will start inviting our new volunteers to the NumPy web team, so
they have the permissions needed to work on the website repo.
