Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3559:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Accumulo's website is not very compelling.
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3559
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3559
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser


A number of devs/users commented that the Accumulo website (in addition to other content)
is often lacking the attention-grabbing visuals and compelling language.

As a first pass, we should have a much better index page for the website which hooks users/devs
who might be on the fence about whether or not to use Accumulo.

For the entire site, we could do a better job with a branding that people can immediately
identify as "Apache Accumulo" (that extends beyond just a logo).

As far as content itself, I believe we have significant "good" content already, but it often
gets too wordy or is organized poorly. Make a pass through the content, remove unnecessary
words, reorganize content (if necessary), and ensure we have consistent links to all content
(e.g. release notes archive).
