My opinion and recommendation since Portugal was to create a "kind of" learning paths by type of audience into OWASP materials, that is, something like the following:

1. Software Developers, Top 10 => Developers Guide => Code Review Guide => .....
2. Software Provider, Top 10 => Legal Annex => SAMM => ASVS => ...
3. Security Auditor, Top 10 => ASVS => Testing Guide => WebScarab => WebGoat => Orizon => ...
And so on....

So we can have a "Where to Start" section on the main page with big Image buttons and people can simply click on the one more appropriate for his role or what she/he is interested in learning/becoming, That page will contain a list of materials relevant to them and optionally have access to everything else at the site.

Right now we are "forcing" our audience/users to identify by themselves what is more relevant to them, although they don't know the projects/materials, which ends up in the user giving up or taking the wrong decision like choosing Top 10 as an standard even though we have ASVS.

What do you think?
