I made changes according to your feedback.  You can see them at
http://people.apache.org/~isapir/mockups/tomcat-site-2/

To make room for the nav items, I moved the logos above the nav bar.  That
also allowed for the ASF logos to be shown at the top.  On a very small
screen, the full ASF logo is replaced with the Feather logo.  The social
media and font-size selector were moved to the bottom, and the search field
is collapsed until it gets focus.

See example of ApacheCon 2019 in new mockup.

 While we definitely want to keep the L&F consistent, I am not sure that
those other properties would need the full experience as the site, e.g. do
the offline docs and site manager need to have a responsive design that
would work on a mobile device?

The main libraries used are:

Bootstrap 4 - MIT license - https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.1/about/license/
jQuery 3 - MIT license - https://jquery.org/license/
Popper.js (comes with Bootstrap, not using features ATM AFAIK) - MIT
license - https://github.com/FezVrasta/popper.js/blob/master/LICENSE.md

Please let me know your thoughts.

Best,

Igal
