I appreciate your candid feedback which at times is kind of a brutal 
cold shower telling how people from the outside see us.

I won't comment much on the Evolution part, since I am not using it (I'm 
sticking with Thunderbird) and we have people from the Desktop team here 
which can answer better, I just hope that warning will be gone until we 
reach the final release (you used beta or pre-beta software). Evolution 
is the default main client on the Desktop spin, so we are inheriting it 
as a default, as the Design spin is intended for desktop usage.

Agave is a nice little apps that I (and some other people around here) 
are linking a lot. But I can see how it can be confusing for someone not 
knowing about it: it allows to create color palettes which can be used 
later in GIMP, Inkscape and some other apps. It is not developed by us, 
but is an "upstream" project: http://home.gna.org/colorscheme/

Now to your suggestions:

That would be a glossary of terms used in Linux, Windows and Mac (Fedora 
is a flavor of Linux) and I am sure there must be one around somewhere 
on the internet.

For the "computer lingo", would you find useful enough something like 
http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/go01.html ?

For reporting bugs I believe we had in the works some desktop app to 
make it easier. For understanding the bugzilla language maybe it would 
be useful to have  a simplified version of 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugsAndFeatureRequests (or do we already 
have one?)

Normally that is your personal page, where you can write a bit about 
yourself and help the other people in the team know you better. You can 
have sup-pages of it for individual personal tasks, for example your 
study could have been better hosted on a page like
