Definitely a good step in the right direction. Good job Keren.

I tried adding new sections but wasn't able to so I am assuming that I

1. External Data.
2. Metadata.
3. Transactions.
4. System Components.
5. Replication.
6. Functions.
7. Records and Frames. (I believe we already have this documented in
8. Bootstrapping and Shutting down.
9. Hyracks Job construction and execution.
10. Feeds.

We can later add the content and start rounds of validation/refining.
