 If you need to know what cTAKES is, the About page in the *General* section will give you
a cursory look at what cTAKES can do. 
-Downloads and the glossary are best left alone until you are directed there by the documentation
or you need a definition.

to the code base and who use it in projects at their own place of business.
+The *Community* section is where you can interact with other people who use cTAKES as well
as the people who contribute to the documentation and the code base.

 Next you will see sections for *Users* and *Developers* and *PPMC* (which includes Committers).

 Apache has their own [definition of users](http://incubator.apache.org/guides/participation.html)
matching these:
 
   - **Users** is for people who want to take a binary distribution of cTAKES and try it out
or perhaps configure it for a run at annotating text in their enterprise.
-  - **Developers** is for those looking to change or extend the code, compile the code, deploy,
and annotate text for their enterprise. Developers are encouraged to contribute changes and
fixes back to the community through a committer or by becoming a committer.

   - **Committers** are in the PPMC (Podling Project Management Committee). They check-in
code for cTAKES, write documentation including this web site, help the community produce releases,
vote as a community member, and more.
