In Codeberg/Design#39 the idea was thrown around to put some links
under a new dropdown and prominently link to the docs instead.
This rewrites the docs index page and adds some more information on how
to get started, as well as adds some other tweaks to communication
methods and gives a new explanation of what Codeberg is.
This PR is my first write-up, rather a dump of three tiny fixes I wanted to do for quite some time now. I didn't set up the generator on this machine yet, so it's not properly tested yet (will do [Update: Done]).
It's not optimal yet IMHO, I still consider it unnecessary to have a docs index page and a getting started page. I think they should be combined somehow.

## Codeberg vs. Gitea
[Gitea](https://gitea.io) is a free software for Git-based software development that powers Codeberg. Compared to Codeberg, Gitea is not a hosted service, but the free software tool to build those. Everyone can install their own Gitea instance to host their own projects. There are also some Gitea instances next to Codeberg you can use, but please make sure you find a site that is actively maintained and updated, and that you trust the provider. We're looking forward to seeing all those instances federate, so it doesn't matter too much which one you choose.
