Is there a cTAKES project that may serve as an example on how the cTAKES
community develops or how a project should look like?
I learned that different people set up UIMA project in a quite different
manner and I do not what to get inspired by "some sort of out-dated"
approach in the cTAKES repo.

Are there restriction or preferences about the preprocessing components
that should be used and the kind of "output" of the project.
Components: On which components may the componetns rely: tokenizer, ...
parser, ... dict lookup?
"output": Should the project provide a pipeline or a single AE?

More comments below.

You can already go ahead with the UIMA Ruta Workbench if you want, or
wait until I set up the project with ruta integration.

If any questions arise, just ask :-)

Ok, I'll investigate if we have already access to the dataset here.
