Refreshing / redesigning our website

During the hackathon in Aachen we discussed our website, and whether
we should / could update its look and feel a bit. This is separate
from our wiki, which we already intend to move to the ASF confluence
wiki (still working on that, whenever I have some spare minutes).

I asked on dev_at_community.a.o for guidelines or tips [1]. Didn't get
much out of it unfortunately, except a couple of references to
required links ([2], [3]) and branding policy [4]. Looking at other
ASF projects, there is clearly a lot of diversity, but some definitely
look more modern, and some look oldish :-).

I'm a total noob on website design, so I'm not going to go further
with this myself. But if anyone would like to work on this and try
some things, that'd be great. I suppose a lot can be accomplished by
tweaking the css and related UI stuff.

I think we should be able to try out various things on
subversion-staging, and discuss what people think about it etc ... Or
perhaps it would be better to set up another branch of our website,
specifically for working on the design (subversion-design.apache.org
or whatever).

Some things to keep in mind:
- Don't break existing links.
- Watch out for requirements ([2], [3], [4]).

Related random idea: I think it'd be nice to integrate a "task"
widget, like they have on httpd.apache.org for example [5], powered by
