   It's true the the Apache brand is something worth building on. For the rest see my comment
above concerning the nature of Cocoon vs. other successful Apache projects.

+Major design issues with the site:
+ * The heading and navigation take up too much real-estate. 
+ * Page body is too wide.
+ * Page layout seems unbalanced, fragmented.
+
+Quick fixes:
+ * Reduce padding of the page body.
+ * Use a narrow, serif font such as Times for the page body.
+ * Redo the masthead. No use saying "Cocoon" twice.
+
+ I am actually quite fond of the Struts site (and the main ASF site, for that matter). Another
example of a good site layout is [http://www.mono-project.com/ "The Mono Project"]. It has
a clean layout that nicely separates tasks (general info, developing, and contributing, with
quick links to downloads and documentation).
