-    <section name="Distributed graph processing with Giraph">
-<p><i>Giraph</i> (pronounced like the animal giraffe) is an iterative graph
processing system.  As an example use case, Facebook uses Giraph to analyze its social graph
in production. Giraph is motivated by the Turing Award winning [<a href="#turing">1</a>]
elegant Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) model of distributed computation by Valiant [<a
href="#bsp">2</a>], and the Pregel graph processing system [<a href="#pregel">3</a>]
from Google that evidenced that an appropriately extended BSP model is useful for large-scale
graph computation. Giraph distinguishes itself by being an open source, scalable graph processing
platform with a growing community of users worldwide. You are welcome to explore the <i>User
Docs</i> menu above that explain how to process graphs with Giraph.</p>

+    <section name="Welcome to Apache Giraph!">
+      <p><i>Apache Giraph</i> is an iterative graph processing system built
for high scalability. For example, it is currently used at Facebook to analyze the social
graph formed by users and their connections. Giraph originated as the open-source counterpart
to <i>Pregel</i>, the graph processing architecture developed at Google and described
in a 2010 <a href="http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1807184">paper</a>. Both
systems are inspired by the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulk_synchronous_parallel">Bulk
Synchronous Parallel</a> model of distributed computation introduced by Leslie Valiant.
Giraph adds several features beyond the basic Pregel model, including master computation,
sharded aggregators, edge-oriented input, out-of-core computation, and more. With a steady
development cycle and a growing community of users worldwide, Giraph is a natural choice for
unleashing the potential of structured datasets at a massive scale. To learn more, consult
the <i>User Docs</i> s
 ection above.</p>
 
+      <subsection name="Download">
+        <p>Official releases of Giraph may be downloaded from an <a href="http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/giraph/">Apache
mirror</a>. Pre-built packages will soon be available through Apache's Maven repositories,
making it easier to include Giraph in your projects.</p>

-<p>Giraph is a new project and we're looking to quickly build a community of users
and contributors. All types of help is appreciated: contributing patches, writing documentation,
posing and answering questions on the mailing list, even <a href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GIRAPH-4">graphic
design</a>. Here's how to get involved with Giraph (or any Apache project):</p>
-
-<ul>
-  <li>Subscribe to the <a href="mail-lists.html">mailing lists</a>, particularly
the user and dev list, and follow their activity for a while to get a feel for the state of
the project and what the community is working on.</li>
-  <li>Browse through <a href="issue-tracking.html">Giraph's JIRA</a>, our
issue tracking system, to find issues you may be interested in working on. To help new contributors
pitch in quickly, we maintain a <a href="http://bit.ly/newbie_apache_giraph_issues">set
of JIRAs</a> that focus on getting new contributors started with the mechanics of generating
a patch &#151; downloading the source, changing a couple of lines, creating a patch, verifying
its correctness, uploading it to JIRA and working with the community &#151; rather than
deep technical issues within Giraph itself. These are good issues with which to join the community.
Take a look at the section on <a href="generating_patches.html">generating patches</a>
for detailed instructions on creating patches.</li>
-  <li>Try out the examples and play with Giraph on your cluster. Be sure to ask questions
on the mailing list or open new JIRAs if you run into issues with your particular configuration.</li>
