The current page layout has two logos:

Commons on the left, with the feather.
(This needs to be replaced, as it is ancient)
It clearly associates Commons with Apache.

The component logo is on the right.
Many of these don't have feathers, but are they used stand-alone?

Perhaps, but that might make the logo rather busy.

If the logos are to be used on the website only, then I see no need to
combine them.
