+This includes the wiki, JIRA, subversion and other tools to better manage the
 project in general.  We would like to make it easier for developers to find things
 to do for the project without worries about duplicating efforts.  We need to find
 a better means to divide labor.  This mostly entails agreeing upon a design, carving
 out interfaces and coding to those interfaces after developers have chosen their
 niches hence the parts of development they would like to take on.  We would like to

+==== Howto build the site ====
+
+Currently as a podling the Directory Project's resources are managed under the Apache Incubator.
+The website is no exception.  The specific incubator module used is the '''incubator-directory'''
+CVS module.  Check it out like so:
+
+{{{
+cvs -d :ext:username@cvs.apache.org:/home/cvs co incubator-directory
+}}}
+
+This module contains a content directory: '''www'''.  The final content under '''www''' is
served
+up by the Apache servers.  The module's '''www''' folder is checked out daily into the following
+directory on cvs.apache.org:
+
+/www/incubator.apache.org/directory
+
+So all we have to do is generate the site out of our subversion
+working directory and copy the Maven generated content into the
+'''www''' folder of the CVS working copy for the incubator-directory
+CVS module.  That's a mouth full.
+
+Once the generated content is copied, the changes are committed.  Then
+deployers should ssh into cvs.apache.org and cd to the
+'''/www/incubator.apache.org/directory''' to do an update like so:
+
+{{{
+cd /www/incubator.apache.org/directory
+cvs update -d
