I would be happy to update the web site if people provide the material. 
As Craig and Andy have suggested, we can add links or pages to 
Community/Documentation and we can add to Community/Mailing Lists.

BTW, the Implementations page http://db.apache.org/jdo/impls.html was 
based on material from JDOCentral.
