Hi Charles!

Currently, I htink the only examples are the README[1] and the installation
section of the user manual[2].

Neither of these are really great examples (the README has already been
flagged as trying to do too much[3]). Perhaps you could pull some of the
getting started stuff out of the README for this. Unfortunately, I don't
think there's been much progress on deciding how we want our documentation

I think the best idea is probably going to be for you to make something
like a (using Apache CMS markdown[5]). That could go in the
codebase under docs/ and we could publish it on the website.

It's important to note that we'd want instructions that don't favor a
particular vendor. Ideally, we'd want the instructions to cover getting
things set up on top of a stack of just Apache releases.

I filed ACCUMULO-2214 so we can track this off the mailing list[6]. Let me
know once you get started and I'll assign the ticket to you.
