I hope this is the kind of feed-back you are looking for.

 From a functional, informative point of view, both the banner and the 
docs themselves are ok.

But from an artistic, look-and-feel, etc., pov they look... well, not so 
good. The banner may be expressing the Apache membership alright but the 
artistic impression is poor. The docs themselves, with the old-fashioned 
three frames view and the ugly little blue buttons give me a strong 
sense of deja-vu, ca. 1996.

I don't have any suggestions for improvement, but all the other pages in 
the list I have looked at looked _much_ better, banners included.
