I agree that the Donate link probably needs to be a bit more prominent
(the current link in the upper-right corner kind of blends in with
everything else and my eyes just glean over it).

Maybe add it as a tab or "above the fold"... something that kind of
popped into my head when thinking about the "Donate" link is that the
term "Contribute" may make sure sense, since the project is not only
helped by monetary or physical donations, but also contributions of code
and volunteering time on documentation, Ports, etc. Then again, my mind
doesn't always produce things that make a lot of sense :)
