Indeed, the Derby documentation needs improvement. Every Apache project 
I know begs for documentation contributors, so I'll take this 
opportunity to beg on behalf of Derby.

The list at http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY shows there are 
many open documentation issues. I would encourage anyone who would like 
to contribute documentation improvements to subscribe to the derby-dev 
list and participate in the doc discussions there. Doc contributors are 
sorely needed and you'll be heartily welcomed.
