Nice, though a few nitpicks:
* I'd like a download link in the top menu as well, it was not very
  intuitive to look under community to download.

* I do not think the yellow table headers match the colour scheme.

* When I clicked the Documentation link I expected to come to some kind
  of documentation page with links to stuff like the handbook, manuals
  and HOWTOs, not the wiki front page. Perhaps there's some sub-page on
  the wiki which could be used?

* I'd like a cleaner download page with just information about
  downloading, information about different releases could be on some
  other page.

I like the clean look.

CVSWeb, man-page, and bugs.
