It would be useful to list the current problems this revision wants to solve.

The two subtasks refer to improvements on the existing pages. However, it is worth to review the current index, the structure of the TCG itself. I have the impression that it has grown organically and that it has room for improvement. I am not sure new readers landing to the TCG main page will quickly understand the scope of the TCG and will find the right page for the information they are looking for. Has there been any feedback in this direction?

T176276: Technical Collaboration Guidance design is largely about this question, not just specific pages (though that is part of it). Feedback in this direction has begun, in written form with the CL review of the TCG and in-person conversations, and is extending to the product teams this coming quarter as working groups form between the teams to review the TCG.

There will be several design options available. A simple example of one I drew up is here: https://docs.google.com/a/wikimedia.org/drawings/d/1u3Ovglnb1U-5b-wg362HZuU6X8rd8WYvJrTVa-KSYio/edit?usp=sharing

Hopefully I'll have more professional input on what we end up going with.

Don't forget to have your layout working on mobile.
