+              <li>Before you start, make sure you have this javascript link bookmarked
in your browser:

+              <li>Navigate to the existing publicly viewable page you wish to edit.
 While viewing it, click or select 
+                the ASF CMS bookmark.  The CMS will create a private workspace for you, and
place you in that workspace
+                at the necessary location to work on a copy of the target page.
+                <ul>
+                  <li>If you are editing an Incubator Status page for your podling
project, you will see the HTML raw text for that 
+                    page, in an editing window.  Such pages are typically located in the
SVN path 
+                    .../trunk/content/projects/PROJECTNAME.xml , which you can see in the
upper right corner of the browser.</li>
+                  <li>If you are attempting to edit the top-level Incubator Welcome
page at <a href="">
+          </a> you will enter a directory data
structure that is more confusing, because the
+                    Incubator pages are table-generated rather than being simple HTML text.
 This directory is .../trunk/content/ in SVN,
+                    and has both subdirectories and content files.  To add or edit the info
about your podling, click
+                    on the "podlings.xml" link, which contains the XML specs for all the
podlings referenced from the Incubator
+                    pages.</li>
+                </ul>
+              </li>
+              <li>Alternatively, if you need to add a new page, go to the top-level
Incubator Welcome page at <a href="">
+          </a> and click or select the ASF CMS
bookmark.  You will enter the CMS directory
+                 structure at SVN path .../trunk/content/ as described above.  Now navigate
to where you need to add the
+                new page.  For instance to add a new podling's Incubator Status page, click
on "projects/" to enter path
+                .../trunk/content/projects/ , where each podling has a PROJECTNAME.xml file.</li>
+              <li> Now, before you try to add or edit anything, UPDATE THE WORKSPACE
+                <note>The CMS will routinely 
+                show you a workspace that may be months out of date.  If your podling already
exists, you may not be able to
+                see it.  You also may not see edits done by others in the meantime.  You
must update, by clicking the "[Update]" link 
+                in the top left corner of the CMS page.  After it updates, you should see
content corresponding to the current public
+                  web site.</note>
+              </li>
+              <li>Now you are ready to edit.  
+                <ul>
+                  <li>If you are looking at the file you wish to edit, you can go ahead
and make changes.</li>

to that file.</li>
+                  <li>If you need to add a file, but you're looking at a different
file, move up to the directory structure by using the 
+                    path links in the top right corner of the CMS page.</li>
+                  <li>If you are looking at a directory and need to add a file, navigate
to the correct location in the directory tree

+                      <li>In the top left corner, either "Edit this Directory" or "Add
New File or Directory:" should be present.</li>

type the relative path of the file you want to

+              </li>
+              <li>You have to commit and build your changes before you can preview
them in a Staging area.  (Don't worry, Staging is still

and then click "Submit".  (If you don't choose
+                "Quick Commit" it will let you do a diff and more edits before committing.)</li>
+              <li>Once you commit, it sends you to a monitoring page.  You can monitor
the build if you wish in the "[Follow Staging Build] page.
+                When it completes, go back to the monitoring page.  If the build passed,
click "[Staged]" to preview your work.  Then go back

+              <li>If you need to make more changes, press "[Edit]" to continue editing
your workspace.</li>
+              <li>When the Staged work is complete and satisfactory, press "[Publish
Site]" to make it public.  In a few seconds you can view it
+                by clicking "[Production]" or simply browsing to the public URL and refreshing
your browser cache.</li>
