Have you considered that the index page may be too busy.
For example see :
There is a huge amount of information available but only headings are used on
the index page. Using their approach I would guess that a link titled "About"
would be suitable for those who want to know what boost is.
IOW nothing much on the main page ...just links.
"Welcome to Boost"
main page | Maybe down the tree
What is boost ?->
Site Map ->
Boost Newsgroups ->
As a user all I usually want from an index is to get to the particular
information I need as quickly as possible by clicking on the appropriate
link.( For instance how would I quickly find Supported Compilers via the current
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
