"Developer" and "user" are just ambiguous terms here, so lets drop them.
How about "maintainers" for developers _of_ Lucene?  

How about:
 - Lucene Maintainers Guide (or "Internals Guide") for us;
   - internals, building, coding conventions, etc
 - Developing projects with Lucene - for our users.  
   - how to create and maintain indexes, index documents, search
 - A one-page "end-user's guide" documenting the syntax of the query
   parser in plain english.  "End-User Documentation."
