Agreed.

Also, the current event looks wrong in the page footer. Not sure it
makes sense for the built-by Maven logo to be there either.

There's no Apache or Apache Commons logo, presumably because these use
relative links, and the images are missing.
Could you add the directory so we can see what it would look like?

The drop-down heading "External Links" should be renamed to "Apache
Links", or possibly flattened into direct links.

The top menu bar extends across the whole page, but the body does not.
This causes problems on mobile devices.

I agree it's difficult to read body text that extends across the whole
page, but there is now a lot of space either side that could be used
perhaps for logos or other items.
