The site is built from
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk/, and the specific
stuff that you'd be looking for is in multiple locations:

  Projects (one file per):
    https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk/site-author/proj
ects/

  Project menu for web pages:
    https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk/site-author/styl
esheets/project.xml

Perhaps the latter could be populated from the former.

We used to use a different meta-data format, but everything was converted to
anakia.  The key issue is that people want to be able to just do:

  svn checkout https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk site
  cd site
  ./build.sh

and have it work.

We also have IP Clearance docs, although I'd put integrating that at a lower
priority than managing meta-data for the projects.

It probably does make sense to index them, with appropriate branding.  There
are a lot of JSRs and other specifications whose implementations are going
through the Incubator, plus it would be helpful to see where the ASF has
multiple implementations (and users) of the same specification.
