Sounds good.  Couple of questions and thoughts:

How big were you thinking of making this?  Your outline suggests several
pages at least.  Or were you thinking of just one page?

I suppose this is going to be authored in Forrest or perhaps Docbook.

I had been thinking of putting together additional documents for those
interested in going through the incubator [1].  We regularly get questions
like: "I'm the lead for project ABC which would be a great addition to
Apache.  How do we join?"  Some points of your outline touched on this,
but I may still be interested in writing a very simple, user friendly
guide to contributing to the ASF.  I'm never satisfied with current
documentation. :)

On a final note, I don't believe I have any SVN commit rights to anything
in the incubator.  I can work up some Forrest or Docbook XML stubs based
on the outline and if everyone like them, then perhaps I can get access to
putting them somewhere.  Or I could start in the wiki, but in that case,
I'd start on content rather than the XML structure.
