a few key sentences on the project (reference BSP, Pregel, Hadoop), how to build, and maybe
a code snippet to show the vertex API. Everything else could probably be moved down or to
other pages.

the site, continuous integration, etc). The Modules section seems useless right now. License
should probably link to the specific version. Do we even use all those Reports?

I reduced the text a bit on the landing page (carved out two separate pages - how to contribute
and presentations).  
Unfortunately, the design limits what we can do with the logo easily.
Changed Hello Page rank to just page rank.  I think the full example will require a bit more
effort.  Let's put what we have in now so that we can get everyone working on some documentation.

Here's the revised site:
