The site does not have all the requirements:

https://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/pmcs#navigation

There's no link to the main ASF website.
There's no LICENSE or Thanks link.
There's no download link.
etc.

The quick start guide pages do have download links, but the primary
link is to Maven rather than the ASF, and there are no instructions as
to how to check sigs or hashes, and no link to the KEYS file that I
could find.

The SHA-512 checksum must have the extension .sha512

http://www.apache.org/dev/release-distribution.html#sigs-and-sums

Also the latest release appears to be 1.3.2 (dated Feb 2017) but the
download links point to 1.3.1.

The older releases (1.3.1 and 1.3.0) should have been deleted from the
release/dist directory by now.

There's no Apache feather logo which is often used as the link to the
main ASF site.
