i'm not sure whether we've been walking a bit at cross purposes (or not). 
i was talking about just the jexl website. (this has a copy of the commons 
nav-bar.) i'm like the actual commons site the way it is now :)

i agree that some guidelines for the websites of maven/centipede generated 
components would be useful but i don't think that there's much chance of 
generating interest or consensus on a mailing list. maybe adding a 
document to the website would be a better plan. i - for one - would be 
likely to measure the site against a set of good practices when creating a 
basic website for a new component or when creating a new release for an 
existing component.
