Hi Kristian, thanks for looking at this.

I think it would be reasonable to:

1) Remove the sentence "See the FAQ page  for links to
subproject conventions." since that page does not exist.

2) Change the sentence "Any JAR committed to the Project's
repositories must be licensed for redistribution. BSD and MPL
style licenses are generally fine, but many Sun JARs  do
not permit redistribution." so that it doesn't use hyperlinks,
but just uses the words "JAR" and "Sun JARs" normally. I think
the sentence is sensible on its own and doesn't need the

3) Change the sentence "For example, Turbine has page on
the site that details the branches currently in use." to
replace "Turbine has page" with "Derby has a page", and to
change the hyperlink to point to
http://db.apache.org/derby/derby_downloads.html since that
page seems to be a good example of a page which details
the branches currently in use.
