Errr.  Isn't this list of resources already available on another page?
If so please just point to it, rather than duplicate it.  (There should
be exactly one canonical location for such info.)

And BTW infra experience tells me info about execuding the PNS
process (PODLINGNAMESEARCH) should live on www.a.o/foundation/marks/, 
but that might be an issue for another patch.

It's important that the jira records only facts and not interpretations
of them.  That's one of the reasons you should avoid re-describing the
process, and should instead just link to wherever it's already
documented at.

Also, missing space.  Next time consider running a spellchecker.
