      The Derby website is stale and needs to be cleaned up. Here is an initial list of things I want to clean up:

      1) The copyright year in the page footer is 2015. That should be 2017. Extra credit if we can parameterize the footer so that the copyright year is automatically updated whenever we refresh the website with a new release.

      2) The document references in the FAQ (http://db.apache.org/derby/faq.html) are hard-coded. I just updated them from 10.7 doc references to be 10.13 references. But we should parameterize doc references across the Derby website so that, again, they are updated whenever we refresh the website with a new release.

      3) I removed dead links in some of the top-level pages along with stale information. We need to make a systematic pass through the whole website. Extra credit if we can automate the location of dead links so that we can clean up the website when we publish releases.

      4) We need to remove material which addresses old issues which no-one cares about any more.

      5) Extra credit if we can cleanup the wiki similarly.
