+<p>Our two websites: <a href=""></a>
and <a href=""></a>.  Why two?
 There is some logic here,
+although it is not perfectly executed (yet).   The website is our primary
user-facing website.  It is where we put content intended for end-users
+to use, so downloads, product documentations, support and other related materials.  The
website, on the other hand, is the main portal for
+project members, the contributors to the project.  We run the project on,
and the website is a service we provide to users.</p>
 <p>MediaWiki (also called MWiki) is used for the wiki on the <a href=""></a>
 We use MWiki for many of the user-facing pages on the website, especially in the areas of
documentation and support.  If you are familiar with Wikipedia and 
 the syntax used for authoring articles there, then you will find our MediaWiki very easy
to use, since Wikipedia
 also uses MediaWiki.  If you are new to MediaWiki please read over this <a href="">introduction
to the basics</a>.</p>

-<p>Apache CMS</p>
+<p>Apache CMS (Content Management System) is the software that manages our websites,
including the application of side-wide templates used to apply, for example, 
+the common page footers that occur on each page).   There is a web interface to the Apache
CMS that makes it easy to make small updates to a page.  If you are interested
+in adding or editing the website you can watch this video on the <a href="">Apache
CMS's Anonymous Mode</a> now.  Otherwise 
+this is a valuable skill you can pick up later.</p>
+<p>Subversion is the Version Control System (VCS) used by the project.  Subversion
is also its own Apache project.  The source code for the OpenOffice product as well as 
+the files for the websites are all stored in Subversion.  Developers use Subversion heavily
in their work.  Advanced work in QA and bulk website changes also involve using

+<p><a href="">Bugzilla</a> is used to track
defect OpenOffice (bug) report.</p>
+<p><a href="">JIRA</a> is another issue
tracking application.  Some Apache projects use JIRA instead of Bugzilla.  We mainly use JIRA
when we 
+need to raise an issue with another group at Apache that uses JIRA, for example the Apache
Infrastructure Team.</p>
 <p>The role of the Apache Infrastructure Team (Infra or Infra@)</p>
+<p>The <a href="">Infrastructure
team</a> are essentially the system administrators for all Apache-wide servers and services,
+many of the services described above.  As you can imagine, with all the projects that are
part of Apache, this is huge job.  In order to support this number of projects
+and provide good service levels in this shared infrastructure environment, we align ourselves
with the common services that are made available to other projects.<br />
+In other words, we have a "menu" of services that we can enable for the project, and the
ability to do some customization, within defined bounds, but we cannot easily use 
+a service outside of that menu.<br />
 <p>What to do if you have a problem:</p>
-<li>Questions on how to use the service</li>
-<li>Requests to enhance or modify the service</li>
+<li>Questions on how to use the service: First, look for intructions on the website.
 If that fails, post a note to the ooo-dev mailing list for hints.</li>
+<li>Outages: <a href="">Current status</a>
is posted.  You might also want to subscribe to Infra's <a href="">Twitter
+If you see an outage not noted there already, you can notify Infra via IRC channel #asfinfra
on Freenode.</li>
+<li>Requests to enhance or modify the service: Propose something on ooo-dev.  Even
though Infra is required to carry out some tasks, you still should get consensus 
+first on the project's mailing list.</li>
