Well, the header uses the Apache CloudStack logo by itself. To me this
indicates, along with the domain name used, that this is an official Apache
CloudStack website. I would be more comfortable if the header clearly
indicated the nature of the site. Perhaps if you had a name for your
website that wasn't just "CloudStack China". That to me indicates that this
is an official offshoot of the Apache CloudStack project. A better name
might be "X for Apache CloudStack" where X could be "Intro" or "Guide" or
whatever. Consider the difference between "CloudStack Foo" and "Foo for
Apache CloudStack". At the moment your header indicates just "CloudStack",
which is problematic. A standard disclaimer would be good too. Maybe you
already have one? I can't read Chinese. The rest of the issues seem
secondary to sorting out the name and logo of this site, and making sure
that it communicates the relationship properly.
