Yes, this is by far the most important thing that must always be on
the front page of any project's web site.  1 or 2 sentences that says
"CentOS is ..." [a Linux distribution that aims to be binary
compatible with Redhat] ... or something like that.  There's nothing
more annoying than spending 5 minutes clicking around a project site
trying to figure out what the project actually does.
