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 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

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
