Subject [all] Commons Manual
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2005 03:29:30 GMT
Let's imagine a manual existed for Commons committers. It would assume
that a committer understands the ASF, ie) they've read the
Apache-Committer-Manual (imagine that exists too). What would the
chapters be?

Initial list:

* Short description of Commons/Introduction.
* Communication. How to use the mailing lists. Voting.
* Subversion information. How to check code out.
* Maven information. How to build.
* Site information. How to generate the site. How to upload your changes.
* Releasing. How to release.
* PMC. What they're there for (Commons point of view).
* Legal. How to not screw-up.

Am I missing anything?

Idea, if it's not obvious, is to bring together the various bits of
information on wiki's, site and more importantly in people's heads.
Stick it in a more concrete form and tell people to go read it.
