I think your ideas and feedback are excellent; it is great to have
your experiences as it has been a while since any of the existing
developers has set their environment up from scratch :)

I think that we generally try to keep the external Derby
documentation, such as the Getting Started guide, focused on
the needs of the *users* of Derby, as opposed to the needs of
the *developers* of Derby. Our users are not expected to need
to learn how to compile Derby, run the tests, etc.

However, I think that your observations and improvements would
be great if you could edit them into the Derby developer's wiki
pages, starting probably somewhere around here:

The wiki pages can be (and should be) edited by any member of
the Derby community, so please feel free to create a wiki account
for yourself and add your fixes, ideas, checklists, and tutorials
to those wiki pages so that future developers can benefit from them!
