Nothing, Jira and beingable to share bugs between projects is big part
of keeping the java community together. Confluence intergration with
jira is great. And so far is doing much better then collab net at
everything except internationalization.
I had planned to copy the look of the website, but I had thought that
the website was going to be targeted at users (and marketing and so
on). I understand putting together a common framework for websites, but
if we were just focused on the developers I would be championing maven
produced websites like apache.
So far I am waiting for focus on what the community intends its website
to be, I am not interested in a new set of tools with less functionality.

We spent two man months trying to convert Confluence to Drupal (before
backing out), it is straight forward to punt from one wiki format to
another (just is not any fun). Drupal failed usability as a wiki, not
for lack of being able to convert. The XML output of confluence is nice
I will try and set up a more complete table on the web page, and I can
take anthing to the community you guys feel is important.
