I too like the suggestions. I also agree with the avoiding duplication comment.

What I have tried to do so far is provide very simple, very high level
guidance into our site. The problem I find with documentation in the
ASF is that it is typically spread all over the place, often
contradictory and always difficult to read (written by x different
authors over x years).

I think the goal of the ComDev site should be to have a reasonably
consistent tone that signposts other materials spread around the domain.
