I think that we need to facilitate as much as possible content maintenance 
on the page and Apache CMS seems a good enough solution for that. In this 
particular case I think simple is definitely better.

It's all my fault ;-)

I'm happy to explain how to modify it if people want to add things
there now, but as you say:

The standard option here would be to use the Apache CMS, it's a fairly
basic tool but very convenient for our types of projects as it's based
on content in subversion - which also means it's easy to include
generated content.

There's some information here:
http://wiki.apache.org/general/ApacheCms2010
http://www.apache.org/dev/cms.html
http://www.apache.org/dev/cmsref.html

and the Stanbol site is an example of a simple website managed by that 
CMS:
site at http://incubator.apache.org/stanbol/
content at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/stanbol/site/trunk

If people agree with that solution, I can request ASF infrastructure
to set it up for us.

Someone will need to create a design anyway (CSS, logos etc), the CMS
only provides the editing/staging/publishing infrastructure.
