The two blocks of links at the bottom are also important, they will have to
be added to a new "misc" menu or something, there's really no good way
around this.

First block is:
    Who We Are
    Swag
    Heritage
    Resources
    Contact

Second one is:
    Apache Software Foundation
    Legal
    Support Apache
    Sponsorship
    Thanks
