I like it. It would be nice to use as our new site.

It is missing a few items and a little bit of the wording needs to be 
changed. We need a good first sentence, a security link needs to be 
added under the ASF Links, and the trademarks need to be attributed to 
the ASF in the footer. That's what I can see from the first run through. 
The full guidelines are here:

For the first sentence we could go with something like:

"The Apache Droids incubating crawling framework aims to be an 
intelligent standalone robot framework that allows to create and extend 
existing droids (robots)."

We also need to make sure that all ASF projects when first referenced on 
a page have Apache in front of the project name. For example, on the 
index page from your link above, it correctly uses Apache Tika for the 
first reference for Tika, then just uses Tika from there. The 2nd 
reference could be Apache Tika as well, but it doesn't need to be.

In our case, we'll also need incubating. So the first reference to this 
project would be Apache Droids incubating.

In addition we need a disclaimer as it is in the Incubator. We're also 
supposed to have their logo. The Incubator branding guidelines are here.

I can go through and make some of the changes as I have time. Anyone 
else can feel free to make the changes as well.

I see that you have added the correct headers to all of the new files. 
That is excellent.
