x/pkgsite: consider reducing footer size #37865
A spiritual cousin to #37110 perhaps

What did you see instead?
The footer in use takes up a lot of screen real estate! When you're scrolling fast through the docs, you hit bottom and then between the footer and the sticky header, you get this little visor with which to see actual documentation. You then have to scroll back up a little bit to be seeing the actual bottom "page" of the docs.
In terms of the value of the content, you probably could check the stats on it, but I'm willing to bet most visitors to those pages would almost never click those links.
Suggestion would be to have a short footer, like the current godoc. Or maybe just take the bottom section of the current footer:
Thanks for the feedback!
We're currently discussing this request with our UX team, along with other design feedback we've received for the site. We want to review design feedback we have received as part of a broader redesign, as opposed to make piecemeal decisions. I'll update this issue once we have decided on any changes.
