ACK and ACK.  And depending on the weather this weekend I may add the 
normal headers (Title: / Notice:) found on a.o site pages to all the 
community site pages as well for consistency.

Indeed, short and to the point, but explanatory, and serving as an 
intelligent signpost to the many other canonical sources of information 
about ASF policies and Apache projects.
