Hi.
I think that you are right, there is something not quite right, right now, with the 
comment section (apparently on all pages).
As I recall, it used to be that there was an editable section at the bottom of each page,

where one could actually write a comment related to the documentation page in question.
(And that would probably have been the right place to mention the problem).

Now this seems to be replaced everywhere by a fixed message, with links, which don't seem

to lead to anywhere one could actually place a comment.

I have no idea if this is intended, but it seems a bit kafka-esque.

Also the top link of the left-hand menu (Docs Home), could be expected to lead to a page 
covering the docs of all the versions. But instead of that, it seems to loop to the same 
version on which one already is.

points to https://comments.apache.org/help.html. But that gets a 503 service unavailable error.
I find a jira discussion indicating this is a long-standing issue, which was hoped to be solved
by now: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-15947.
